The tempestuous weather in the Eternal City Wednesday appropriately set the tone for La stoffa dei song (The Stuff of Dreams), the new film by Gianfranco Cabiddu, one of the most significant auteurs of Italian cinema.
La stoffa dei sogni tells the story of a modest theatre company (to say the least) that is shipwrecked with a group of dangerous organized crime mobsters on the coast of Asinara, the location of an island-prison in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The story explores the role of art in our lives, bringing to light the universal themes of guilt, revenge, redemption, and pardon.
