Sole

26/09/19, 22:15, ASTOR



Strangers until yesterday, Ermanno and pregnant Lena pretend to be a couple to make money by giving her baby up for adoption. But once Sole is born, the man starts acting like the infant’s real father. An ode to the unexpected calling of parenthood from a highly-promising newcomer who attracted attention at the Toronto and Venice film festivals. In attendance of the director.

Ermanno is a fickle young man. Lena comes to Italy from Poland to sell the baby she’s been carrying for seven months. The two of them, strangers until now, are paid to pretend to be a couple, in order for Ermanno’s uncle to adopt the baby. When Sole is born prematurely, Lena tries to refuse the maternal tie, while Ermanno starts behaving like a real father.

Focusing on the question what makes you a parent, Carlo Sironi, in his first film, explores with expressive consistency the gradual numbing of the heroes before a great responsibility, more acquired than natural. Claudio Segaluscio and Sandra Drzymalska portray them ideally. N.S.
