L'Ultima Stagione

L’Ultima Stagione

Between sentimental thriller and intimist drama, L’Ultima stagione is the season in which hope is gone, after a life full of occasions and successes, but also struggles and delusions. The season in which Corrado no longer dares to believe, and which a deus ex machina, in the form of his affectionate daughter, offers him with quiet devotion, beyond the banality of everyday commonplaces and the prejudices of a society destined to see its own rules subverted. The lives of Corrado and Keldi run on parallel tracks, seemingly irreconcilable yet finally coming together in a coincidence driven by events which neither could have avoided. This story could have become a fairy tale but instead it is sucked into the vortex of human error, revealing the substance of a life worth living in spite of challenges, deceit and small-mindedness. Among desires and impulses, the truth never has a single face.
