ME, MY LOVE / RICORDATI DI ME
‘Some Loves Are Never Forgotten’
Gabriele Muccino's follows-up the great success of his last film L'ultimo
bacio with Ricordati di me which focuses on the generation of Italian forty-somethings:
their dreams, hopes and disillusions. In their twenties Carlo (Fabrizio
Bentivoglio) wanted to become a novelist and Giulia (Laura Morante) dreamed
of becoming a great actress. Years later, they wake up and discover
that reality is quite different: she's teaching high school and he's a
financial broker. As for their children, they're busy pursuing their
own dreams. Disillusionment becomes the motor and motivation for
betrayal, adventures, and what's worse, for their children's life choices.
Once again, Muccino has taken a long, hard look at contemporary Italy and
come up with a portrait of his homeland that's shocking, poignant, at times
funny and never less than insightful.
di me premiered at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival and screened at the 2004
Sundance Film Festival. It was nominated for 10 Donatello Awards
(winning 6, including Film, Actor, Actress and Director) and was one of
Italy’s most successful films in 2003.
