Francesca Comencini, director of Amori che non sanno stare al mondo (screened in the Piazza Grande): “In this film there is a dual nature, that weighs on the characters’ shoulders: on the one hand there is the experience of pain, on the other a joy of living that despite everything remains unstoppable.”
Tommy Wirkola on his What Happened to Monday? (Piazza Grande): “Hopefully this is an entertaining movie at first, but also we did some research about how fast the world population is growing and it is scary. It is something we should be talking more about; face it.”
