ROME, JUL 26 – Freaks Out by Gabriele Mainetti, the highly anticipated and finally announced among the 5 Italian titles in the competition, the new ambitious film by the director who with the first work They called him Jeeg Robot has given a shock to recent Italian cinema, conquering dozens of awards, a box office record and an audience of fans. Written again with Nicola Guaglianone, finding in the cast Claudio Santamaria (with Aurora Giovinazzo, Pietro Castellitto, Giancarlo Martini), Freaks Out was born from a challenge: “to set a film that was together an adventure story in the background of the darkest page of the twentieth century , a Bildungsroman and – last but not least – a reflection on diversity. To do this – said Mainetti – we approached the occupied Rome of 1943 with emotion and respect, but at the same time we gave free rein to the imagination: this is how our four freaks were born, unique and unrepeatable individuals, protagonists of a greater history of them”. Produced by Goon Films, Lucky Red with Rai Cinema is one of the titles on which exhibitors most hope for the return of the audience: it will be released on 28 October with 01. (ANSA).
