I Nostri anni

Fortnight 2001, Feature film, 1h30

Synopsis

Alberto and Natalino are two old men who were partisan fighters in Piedmont during the war. Silurino was another fighter, but he fell victim to the black brigades. Natalino still lives in the mountains, in an old uninhabited village, but Alberto, a widower, spends the summer in a boarding house, where he makes friends with Umberto, an old man confined to a wheelchair. Slowly but surely, all the old memories return to the surface in all their dramatic intensity… « This movie develops from the experiences of people who participated in the liberation war against the Nazis. Events forced these people to act older than their age; in fact, the characters reached old age in the prime of their youth. Every feeling, past and present, corresponds to a different visual construction. The technical approach also parallels the characters’ journey to reclaim their old friendship, their lost youth and ultimately, the meaning of life. » (Daniele Gaglianone)
