THE SOLITUDE OF PRIME NUMBERS
“Big ideas with visual bravura… powerful performances” Tom Hall, TORONTO 2010
Mattia and Alice have both had the lives traumatized by childhood misfortune. They’ve grown up in a society which brings them little joy. They have each other. Or so it seems. This eerie tale of uncomfortable adolescence stems from the multi–million selling book by Paolo Giordano, who also co-wrote the script. Saverio Costanza’s vision is bravura, often thrilling cinema. The cast is superb: Alba Rorwacher (I Am Love) and Luca Marinelli play the adult characters brilliantly, and Isabella Rossellini is a stand-out as Luca’s troubled mother. Contemporary Italian cinema as you’ve not seen before.
