Basilicata coast to coast is the first film of Rocco Papaleo, who is the actor, writer and the director of this film. The cast is comprised of 4 friends who have formed a bass guitar quartet/ They have decided to participate in the annual Scanzania musical festival at the other and of the Basilicata region. The band decides to cross the countryside by foot with also a donkey. Papaleo explores the heart of a mysterious region, that is always forgotten. The setting of this lovely comedy id the Mediterranean cost with its sunny atmosphere. It is a place untouched by industry or cities. In that trip the characters go out by themselves and are transformed during the film by their friendship and contact with nature in this unique part of Italy. Not only that, but Papaleo also wants to celebrate the arts and the beauty of nature summarized by Primo Levi's sentence: "Christ stopped at Eboli". Levi was so fascinated by this beautiful place,that he was buried there. What surprised me most about the film is how Papaleo was able to mix the wonderful work of the actors with the harmony of landscape. Over all, i'd recommend this moving gentle.
