Synopsis

Channelling Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita through a gay male lens, this unadulterated love letter to Rome and its people, is both visually and emotionally lush. Hunky Riccardo Scamarcio (Loro, John Wick 2) plays Matteo, an entrepreneurial playboy who owns a Vogue Living-ready apartment populated by a steady procession of cocaine-toting male lovers. Opening with a muscular body gyrating in a darkened hall illuminated only by torchlight shrouded in pink feathers, it’s magnetic from the get go, with Matteo’s frolics rudely interrupted when he receives news his older brother Ettore is gravely ill. Taking him in after years of estrangement, Matteo slowly but surely reconnects with him. A deeply affecting look at family frayed and remade, it was nominated for both the Queer Palm and the Un Certain Regard award at Cannes last year.
