THE STOLEN CARAVAGGIO
UNA STORIA SENZA NOME
2018, Rai Com, 110 min, Italy/France, Dir: Roberto Andò

As this immaculately crafted drama begins, top screenwriter Alessandro Gassmann, bereft of inspiration, turns to ghost writer Micaela Ramazzotti for his latest project; the script she provides him involves a priceless stolen artwork. But the tale turns out to be more true-to-life than the painting’s Sicilian mafia thieves would like, complicating things for both scribes. Adding to the multilayered story, Jerzy Skolimowski costars as the director of the film within this film.


LONG LIVE FREEDOM
