Dopo aver subito un brutto incidente domestico, Elia torna a casa dall’ospedale completamente privo di memoria: non riconosce più neppure la moglie, che tenta di ricostruire la loro vita di coppia tassello dopo tassello cercando di oscurarne le ombre. Via via che si riportano alla luce informazioni dimenticate si manifestano delle crepe: sono molte le cose che cominciano a non tornare. Come mai lei mente? E perché non vuole darsi fisicamente a lui, che pure è fortemente attratto da lei? Per quale motivo lui – che afferma di essere completamente privo di memoria – si ricorda di certi particolari del viaggio di nozze?

DIRECTOR


Alex Infascelli

Nel 1997 opziona i diritti di un piccolo libro sconosciuto, Almost Blue, e nel 2000 dirige Lorenza Indovina nel film tratto dal romanzo di Carlo Lucarelli: questo lavoro gli vale il Ciak d’oro, il David di Donatello e il Nastro d’argento come miglior regista esordiente e l’arrivo tra i finalisti all’Hollywood Film Festival. Entusiasta della storia di Emilio D’Alessandro, l’autista di Stanley Kubrick, sceglie di dirigere un documentario che parli del dapporto tra i due e dell’universo che hanno attraversato assieme, firmando nel 2015 la regia di S Is for Stanley.
