Qualcosa rimane

by Francesco D'Ascenzo

Storie Italiane

(Italy / 2019 / 67’)

"I measure the passing of time by how uncomfortable it is for a woman or man to slip on their socks in the morning." Fifteen great Italian artists, from Carla Fracci to Paolo Villaggio, by now of old age, bare their souls for the camera in Francesco D'Ascenzo's first feature.

Sitting on their sofa at home, they travel back in time, while the most beautiful memoriesstart dancing in the light of their passionate eyes, which then suddenly clouds withparalyzing fears. A patchwork of heroically beautiful lives, a touching choral reflection on the meaning of life and death, answering one question: What will last?
