Fanteria Cavalleggeri

Doc. expérimental | | couleur | 24:0 | Italie | 2011

A documentary on the recreational circles that appeared in the interwar period in a provincial town. The film observes what happens and everything that surrounds a group made up entirely of senior citizens who are absolutely determined to enjoy themselves. The settings evoke memories of a past that may have never actually existed, with common and recurring aesthetics in which wartime images frequently play a part, and locations steeped in visual images that are perhaps slightly stereotyped.
