:: PLOT

Passing by on the common path of a middle-class life, Antonia’s life is pleasant after all. Antonia is a doctor, specialized in infectious disease like AIDS. More than once she had to tell her patients they were sieropositive, taking on the stress of their painful reactions. In spite of this, Antonia can count on the emotional support of her husband Massimo who loves her deeply. But their love is forced to an end when the man suddenly dies. Shattered and devasted by the very painful loss, Antonia tries to react reordering her house. While hanging a picture on the wall, she comes along a mysterious painting with an unusual dedication written behind the canvas and signed by a certain “ignorant fairy”. The writing leaves no doubt whatsoever: for seven years Massimo had a lover. Antonia decides to follow up and discovers an even more shocking truth: her husband wasn’t betraying her with another woman but with a man, Michele, a young gay living in a popular district of Rome. After a harsh beginning, Antonia tightens a strong and suffered relationship with Michele and his community.

:: BIOGRAHY

FERZAN OZPETEK
Born in Istanbul in 1959, he moved to Italy in 1977 to study History of Cinema at the La Sapienza University of Roma. He attended History of Art and Costume at the Accademia di Navona as well as Directing courses at the Accademia d’Arte Drammatica “Silvio D’Amico” in Rome. After collaborating with Julian Beck and the Living Theatre, he started working as an Assistant Director in 1982 with Massimo Troisi (Scusate il ritardo) and Maurizio Ponzi (Son contento). From then on, he worked at length as an Assistant Director for almost all of Ponzi’s following films, and for other filmmakers like Lamberto Bava, Ricky Tognazzi, Francesco Nuti, Sergio Citti, and Marco Risi. While working with Risi, he worked on his first feature film project, The Bath, produced by Risi and Maurizio Tedesco. Premiering at 1997 Cannes in the Directors’ Fortnight, the film obtained considerable critic and audience success. In 1999 his second film was released, Harem Suare, produced by Tilde Corsi and Gianni Romoli and presented again at the Cannes “Un certain regard” section and at the Toronto, Palm Spring, and at London Film Festivals. In 2001 Ozpetec directed Le fate ignoranti presented at the Berlin Film Festival.

TILDE CORSI
Born in Carrara (Tuscany) Tilde Corsi worked at the Press Office of the PEA production and distribution company of Alberto Grimaldi where she took part in the realization of many films, like Casanova by Fellini, Salò by Pasolini, Novecento by Bertolucci, Cadaveri eccellenti by Rosi. She collaborated with Major US Distributors. In 1992 she began her producing career with Romoli, making Dellamorte Dellamore followed by Nitrato d’argento directed by Ferreri, Harem Suare, Le fate ignoranti and La finestra di fronte by Ozpetek, Kippur and Eden by Gitai. In 2001 she won the Nastro d’Argento as Best Producer for the film Le fate ignoranti.

GIANNI ROMOLI

He wrote screenplays for directors as Sergio Corbucci, Maurizio Nichetti, Lamberto Bava, Michele Soavi, Dario Argento, Marco Ferreri, and Ferzan Ozpetek. In 1992 he began his producing career, making not only films written by himself as Dellamorte Dellamore, Nitrato d’argento, Harem Suare, Le fate ignoranti and La finestra di fronte, but also films as Kippur and Eden,
eventually directed by Amos Gitai. In 2001 he won two Nastro d’Argentos for Best Original Story and Best Producer for the film Le fate ignoranti.
