:: PLOT

Adriana retired to a manor house in the outskirts of Rome, where she lives near her twin daughters. Every now and then, her daughters Angelica and Viola come visit her. She is separated from her husband, Oreste, who dies suddenly. Adriana is always in contact with a friend of the past, Michele, a young man exiled to London after the student revolution of ’68. Michele often writes to Adriana, her daughters and Osvaldo, a very “close” friend, although actually married to Ada. Another character Michele writes to is Mara, a bizarre gal who arrives from Northern Italy with a child she claims being Michele’s, although, she admits, he may be other casual lovers’. Mara enters the life of Michele’s friends or family, without awakening them; then she hangs around a certain publisher, Colarosa; brings chaos into the family of her friend Ricciolona; and at last goes wandering back to her Northern town after Michele is killed in a youth demonstration in Bruges.

:: BIOGRAHY

orn in Milan on September 19, 1943, still very young, Mariangela Melato studied Painting at the Accademia of Brera, drawing posters and decorating windows at department stores to pay her Esperia Sperani acting courses. In her teens she entered the Fantasia Piccoli Acting Company, making her debut with Binario cieco by Terron, staged at the Teatro Stabile di Bolzano. She then pursued her artistic formation under the guide of directors as Dario Fo, Luchino Visconti, and Luca Ronconi. In 1969 he made her film debut in a Pupi Avati film, Thomas, and two years later appeared with Nino Manfredi in Per grazia ricevuta. In 1972, she gained major success for her interpretation of Fiore, Giancarlo Giannini’s Milanese lover in Mimì metallurgico ferito nell’onore by Lina Wertmüller. She then proved to be not only a enormously talented comedian but also a touching dramatic actress, in the features La classe operaia va in paradiso (1971) and Todo modo (1976), both by Elio Petri sided by Gian Maria Volontè, or in the role of Mara in Mario Monicelli’s Caro Michele. A versatile actress of endless genius, Mariangela Melato also gave full demonstration of her dancing talent on the stage of the Sistina Theater, starring as Belcore in Alleluja, brava gente. Or on screen, in Aiutami a sognare once again directed by Pupi Avati, as well as in Domani si balla by Maurizio Nichetti. On stage, she acted in a striking Orlando Furioso, an unforgettable Orestea by Eschileus, and more recently in a vigorous What Maisie Knew by Henry James, all directed by Luca Ronconi, as well as in Phaedra, Medea, and Mother Courage. On screen she co-starred with Ugo Tognazzi in La Belle Epoque, and Il Petomane directed by Pasquale Festa Campanile (1983). She then wandered among the bizare souls of a cemetery in Mortacci by Sergio Citti. In the ’90s she mostly worked at theater but in 1999 she jumped into the crowded cast of I panni sporchi by Mario Monicelli. Very active on TV, after the success of the two-episode film Una vita in gioco, directed by Franco Giraldi (1991) and Giuseppe Bertolucci (1992), she appeared in Due volte vent’anni directed by Livia Giampalmo, a story based on the homonymous novel by Lidia Ravera. In 1999 she was back on screen again directed by Maurizio Zaccaro in Un uomo per bene, in the role of Enzo Tortora’s sister, and in L’amore probabilmente by Giuseppe Bertolucci (2001). Over the course of her career, Mariangela Melato received innumerable recognitions as a theatrical actress – many UBU Awards, the Eleonora Duse Award, four Maschere d’Argento – and as a movie actress – four David di Donatello, six Nastri d’Argento, and two Golden Grolle.
