Lui semplicemente io

(Italy / 2024 / 55’)


In one class, a stupid prank has more serious consequences than expected. The Italian teacher is not interested in finding the culprits to punish them, but she turns the perspective upside down. She assigns an essay, “What is the most beautiful part of you?” Thus begins a journey through misunderstandings, appearances, sensitivity and beauty. The students from the Salvemini Technical Institute in Casalecchio di Reno (Bologna) enact a story that really happened. The game of playing a schoolmate allows them to put themselves in the other's shoes and come to terms with their emotions. The enhancement of one's positive characteristics proves to be a much more effective educational expedient than any punitive or repressive measure.
