SYNOPSIS

Naples, early 1980s: Aldo and Vanda’s marriage finds itself on the rocks when Aldo falls in love with the young Lidia. Thirty years later, Aldo and Vanda are still married. A thriller about emotions, a story of loyalty and infidelity, of rancor and shame. A betrayal, suffering, a secret box, a devastated home, a cat, the voice of the lovers and that of the estranged.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

When I read Lacci (published in English as Ties) for the first time I found in it questions that concerned me directly and characters with which it was hard not to identify. From a family history that spans thirty years and two generations, with bonds that seem more like barbed wire than ties of love, you emerge with a question: have you let your life be ruled by love? Lacci is a film about the hidden forces that bind us. It is not just love that unites people, but also what is left when love is no more. It is possible to stay together out of rancor, in shame, in dishonor, in a foolish attempt of keep your word. Lacci recounts the damage that love inflicts when it makes us suddenly change course and—worse still—when it ceases to accompany us.
