PADRENOSTRO in competition at the 77. Venice International Film Festival
“I am deeply happy and honored to participate in the 77th edition of the International Film Festival – comments director Claudio Noce. Coming back to Venice after several years has a special meaning for me, and doing so with a story inspired by my family makes me even more proud and grateful.
This will be a special edition for the whole cinema world, having the privilege to be there is really a great responsibility. My heartfelt thanks to director Alberto Barbera and the committee for selecting me”.
Rome, 1976. Valerio (Mattia Garaci) is ten years old and has a vivid imagination. His life as a child is upset when, together with his mother (Barbara Ronchi), he witnesses the attack on his father Alfonso (Pierfrancesco Favino) by a terrorist commando. From that moment on, fear and a sense of vulnerability dramatically mark the feelings of the whole family. But it is precisely in those difficult days that Valerio meets Christian (Francesco Gheghi), a little older than him. Lonely, rebellious and cheeky, he seems to come from nowhere. That meeting, in a summer full of discoveries, will change their lives forever.
