Storyline

Dino is forty years old and an immense love for Anna, who is unable to touch and consume in an embrace. Anesthetist by day, compulsive lover at night, seeking satisfaction with prostitutes and swingers. The early death of his brother and mother left him deeply marked and lead to sexual addiction. Rejected the loving care and the gentle advances of Anna, Dino recovers and meets the former partner's, asking them to get back with her or appagarne the pleasure he denies. Dismissed or looked with compassion, the man asks Anna to find a passionate lover. Anna, first reluctant, he ends up giving, while doing a night of sex with a stranger. But the feeling he has for Dino is more powerful than any physical pleasure and frustration. Return home but maybe for her and Dino is really too late to start. Written by lament

I saw the movie
24 September 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie "E la chiamano estate", I was simply amazed and regretted the negative criticism it has received; you have to wonder why critics were so ruthless and not capable of aestethetic reading , why film has been distributed so bad and so rarefied, after two awards at Film Festival in Rome; why the main actress was booed and insulted during the ceremony; why it was not appreciated the effort and the commitment to design a research as that of Paolo Franchi. Acid comments, gossip, inferences have characterized the release of this film. Maybe one of the clearest evidence that Italy, at this moment ( we do hope just for this moment…) is a country traditionalist and deeply conservative, closed to new ideas, perched in Catholic thought hypocritally, condemning the diversity whatever it is , lacking a cultural scene open to experimentation, visual alternatives and other modes of production. Already that the film is a truly independent production, outside the grids of system RAI, the only network now able to produce in Italy. We're sorry for Paolo Franchi and his eyes authorial, for the audacious visual impact of the images, for the poetic drama of the bodies, for the beautiful and talented Isabella Ferrari, for all those who have believed in this project original, visionary and anti narrated. You should see it in order to judge…
