L’Imbalsamatore

Fortnight 2002, Feature film, 1h41

Synopsis

A man too small, a boy too tall, a girl with her mouth made over, all meet by chance. An encounter that seems fated to have no story but, as fate would have it, it becomes the tormented chronicle of denied love. Peppino, the man too small, is a taxidermist. Valerio, the boy too tall, is a waiter. Deborah is one who continually changes jobs… all have different dreams, secret drives: they are three castaways trying to cling to the certainty of a love that can justify the common ills of living and make them normal.
