Dubbed the cult hit of the Venice Film Festival by Italy's leading film magazine Ciak, ORECCHIE (Ears) is the charmingly comic story of a man who wakes up one morning with an irritating ringing sound in his ears. A note on the fridge says: "Your friend Luigi has died. P.S. I took the car". Only, he doesn't remember who Luigi is.
Satirical and blackly comic, ORECCHIE is a sharp, refreshing ride that casts aside the conventions of traditional Italian comedy. Intent on showing a different side of Rome, director Alessandro Aronadio has crafted a visually stunning journey, offering a contemporary portrait of the beloved city rarely seen on the big screen.
Starring Silvia D'Amico, Rocco Papaleo and Milena Vukotic alongside Danile Parisi in his screen debut, ORECCHIE was a triple award winner at the Venice Film Festival including the FEDIC Award for Best Food Scene (in true Italian style, yes this is an award!).
