"A Greek tragedy in the Rione" - LA STAMPA
PLOT: After forty years spent between Lebanon and Egypt, Felice returns to Napoli, the city where he lived until he was 15. His mother, Teresa, welcomes with open arms the son whom she believed was lost forever.  Little by little, Felice gets back in touch with a world that he had to leave and meets Don Luigi, a priest who fights the Camorra and tries to give a future to the young people of the neighborhood.
But Felice also needs to reunite with Oreste, a close friend and companion of adolescent misadventures.  Felice does not heed the advice of others to leave Napoli and forget that dangerous friendship--as if it were possible to leave behind a city that has entered your heart forever.

Mario Martone was born in Naples. He made his directorial debut in 1992 with Morte di un matematico napoletano for which he won the Leone d'Argento at the Venice Film Festival and the David Donatello Best New Director award, Later he won the David Donatello Best Director award for L'amore molesto and David Donatello Best Film award for Noi credevamo.

Regarding his film, Martone said: "Nostalgia is not set in Naples, but in the Rione Sanità, and it is no small nuance. La Sanità is an enclave that not even the Neapolitans know well, a sprawling place."
