Shooting starts on Rocco Papaleo’s new film

Filming has just started for Onda su OndaRocco Papaleo’s new film. As opposed to Basilicata coast to coast which were both set in Southern Italy, the actor, director and screenwriter has chosen to set his third film in South America: filming is set to continue up until the end of September in Montevideo (Uruguay) and Italy. Starring in the film alongside the director will be Alessandro Gassman, whom the former already directed in his debut film.
Ruggero (Gassman) is a lonely chef and Gegè (Papaleo) is a lively singer, who must get to Montevideo for a concert, an unmissable opportunity for him to get his career back on track. Initially there’s bad blood between the two men, but an unexpected turn of events forces them to become friends. They are welcomed in the Uruguayan capital by a woman, Gilda Mandarino (played by Argentinian actress Luz Cipriota), who is organising the concert. But not everything goes to plan… in Montevideo the lives and destinies of the two men, who are different but share the same common desire to be reborn, become intertwined.

Written by Papaleo with his faithful colleague Valter Lupo and Federica Pontremoli, Onda su Onda is being produced by Indiana Production with Less Is More Produzioni and Warner Bros Entertainment Italia. The film will be released on 18 February 2016 by Warner Bros Pictures.
