Da non perdere perché è la nuova pluripremiata commedia drammatica del cantante italiano Luciano Ligabue.

Skyrocketing to number one at the Italian box-office on its opening weekend, the third film by singer-songwriter Luciano Ligabue (From Zero to Ten LIFF02) is a love letter to Italy, starring Kasia Smutniak and Stefano Accorsi. 

Riko (Accorsi, also in There’s No Place Like Home) works in a cured meats factory, just like his father. He got married at a young age to hairdresser, Sara (Smutniak, also in Loro). While Riko’s unhappy with his job, he’s lucky to be working at all, as his factory keeps letting go of its aging staff. He’s living in a home he can barely afford and all he wants is to help his son move to the city. At times picking himself up isn’t easy, but Riko refuses to yield: there are friends to count on, a marriage to be won back, and a home to save. 

Twenty years after their first collaboration, Radiofreccia won Best Actor and Best New Director at the Italian Academy (David di Donatello) Awards, Stefano Accorsi and Luciano Ligabue reunite for this poignant, music-filled look at the ordinary moments that make a life.

Luciano Ligabue

Born in Correggio, Northern Italy, singer-writer-filmmaker Luciano Ligabue worked at a number of different jobs; including fruit picker, factory worker, and accountant before putting out his first record 'Ligabue' in 1990. In 1997 he published the book 'Fuori e dentro il borgo', which inspired his 1998 debut film Radiofreccia, about Correggio in the 1970s. Made in Italy is his third feature. 

Please note, while the trailer may not include subtitles, the film will be screened with English subtitles.
