69th Venice International Film Festival
Director: Alberto Barbera
There is a house where the rain cuts in to a broken roof and an old man inside that old house. While the expanding spider nets and the rustling leafs carry promises of the interior change, Don Alberto Bonnet once again opens his favorite book The Search. Who will resist longer, the house or the man?
language: Spanish, Italian, Portuguese - s/t English, Italian
We got captivated by his look from the very fi rst instant and later his testimony of deep search, his presence, his struggle. He seemed to manage to be one with time, the plants, the insects, the walls of his own house. Don Alberto is an unmasked example of a unity between man and it´s environment.
