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.
Marreo Garrone was born in Rome in 1968 and graduated from art school. He worked as an assistant cameraman for two years before turning to painting. In 1996, he won Nanni Moretti’s Golden Sacher Award for his short, Silhouette. In 1997, he set up his own production house, Archimede, and made the sketch film, Terra di mezzo (which begins with his short Silhouette). After Ospiti in 1998, then Estate Romane in 2000, both of which won praise in international festivals, he directed his fourth feature, L’Imbalsamatore.
