Synopsis

1950s. Domenico is a young boy who lives in a village in the heart of the Dolomites mountains. His father, Pietro, is fifty years old but seems older, worn out by loneliness and wine; he works at the quarry owned by Crepaz, a local unscrupulous entrepreneur. The relationship between father and son is harsh and difficult; the long silences turned them into two strangers. Since some time, a bear threatens the quiet of the village. One night, at the pub, Pietro challenges Crepaz: he is going to kill the bear in exchange for money. The next day, at dawn, he sets out towards the forest. Domenico decides to follow him. Father and son plunge into the woods, deeper and deeper. Little by little, they will become closer and the wall, which separated them, will crumble before the immensity of nature. (cineuropa.org)

 

Jury’s decision:

Dans un petit village des Dolomites, dans les années cinquante, un père et un fils ont des relations difficiles amplifiées par l’absence de la mère et l’asociabilité du père. Cependant, ensemble, pour chasser un ours féroce qui sème la terreur dans la région, ils entreprennent un voyage autant physique que spirituel dans les paysages sauvages des Alpes. Initiation et quête pour se rapprocher de son père de la part de l’adolescent, rédemption pour l’adulte, ce premier film de Marco Segato, qui nous plonge dans l’intimité d’une relation père-fils, interprété avec beaucoup de sensibilité par Marco Paolini et Leonardo Mason, a enthousiasmé le jury CICAE ainsi que le jury officiel du Festival d’Annecy.

 

The jury was composed of:

Méquinion Frédérique, Cinéma Le Club, Gap, France
Gambarelli Maurizio, Cinéma Eden, Puianello, Italy
Di Martino Anna, Bologna Film Institute, Italy
