Se c’è un aldilà sono fottuto – Vita e cinema di Claudio Caligari

2019 - Documentario

Through the images and memories of the actors and technicians of that troupe –  who became a family and allowed him to complete his third and final film – the docu-film offers a portrait of Claudio Caligari, the man and the artist, following the stages of the shooting of Non essere cattivo. Far from the spotlight, outsider by choice, Caligari entered entered the myth by capturing the drug addiction of a group of young people from Ostia in Amore Tossico, his first movie, presented at the Venice Film Festival in 1983.

The director then returned behind the camera only fifteen years later, in 1998, bringing to the screen the violence of a gang of Roman robbers with L’odore della notte. The main characters of that film were played by Giorgio Tirabassi, Marco Giallini and Valerio Mastandrea.

The latter established a deep relationship with the director and supported him in the difficult realization of his last work, presented posthumously in Venice, and greeted by applause and tears.

Presented at the 76th Venice International Film Festival in the section Venezia Classici Documentari
