Here's a film that I am really hoping makes its way to American shores in 2016.
Storie sospese is the story of Thomas (Marco Giallini) who works with a group of climbers in a high mountain yard to secure the impervious side of a mountain. When an unexpected problem causes the closure of the yard, the workers suddenly find themselves unemployed. Thomas faces grave financial problems. A former colleague who now runs a small business comes to the rescue and offers him a job in a small town in Abruzzo. There, he meets Giovanna (Maya Sansa) a feisty teacher and a young geologist, who joins him in his work. He finds himself having to deal with a social life that he was no longer used to, and strange dynamics with his new job.
I'm looking forward to seeing two of my favorite actors working together.. also looking forward to seeing Marco Giallini in a dramatic role. It seems that he's so good at comedy, he sometimes get pigeon-holed in that same role.. but he clearly has a broad range of acting skills and is capable of so much more.
