Giovanni, Cesare and Carosina are each tormented by a different sound. The first can’t sleep because of noise coming from outside his home. The second dreams of a career in electronic music and records a variety of unusual sounds for his compositions. Carosina is haunted by her late father, who pesters her to wear a sweater he is fond of. All three must learn to adapt to their environment in order to find peace of mind. In this first feature, a film determined to stay off the beaten path, Danilo Caputo invites us into a sensory experience set in a village in southern Italy. His three protagonists are prisoners of obsession-inducing resonances that come to dominate their lives. With meticulous attention to sound editing, the young Italian director has created an ensemble film of haunting strangeness. Acclaimed upon its premiere at Karlovy Vary last year, this hypnotic, languid film showcases impressive attention to detail, both visual and auditory. It all makes La mezza stagione a true must-see cinematic experience.
The movie will be screened at the Pune International Film Festival, at the Yashwant International Film Festival in Mumbai and at the Aurangabad Film Festival.
