Storyline

The Gerber's Syndrome is an contagious viral disease that was discovered in Germany in 2008 and spread all over the world. It is extremely contagious, fast spreading, and deadly. This syndrome is very difficult to spot, because it's like a normal dose of the flu, with all the subsequent symptoms that most of us are familiar with; but later, the virus affects the brain cells causing serious damage to the central nervous system. A TV crew is making a documentary about the disease and the way society is coping with it by documenting the stories of three people who are dealing with Gerber's Syndrome: Melissa is a young girl that has been infected, Doctor Ricardi is the doctor who is following her and Luigi is a member of the CS, the security organization that has to deal with infected people.

Gerber syndrome
28 May 2011 | by padjslamSee all my reviews

I have seen this film at the Busto Arsizio Film Festival; it was the last in competition, i didn't heard much of it before the screening so i didn't know what to expect. It was a good surprise! I am not a lover of this type of films, i haven't even seen Blair witch project, but i think that wasn't just another horror flick. There was a strong message below the main story line, it made me think about these recent epidemics that we have seen in Europe and other countries, and most of all, it made me think: what would i do if i was in that situation? The acting is amazing, i knew Valentina Bartolo before, she is in an Italian TV show, but here she was so good. After a few scenes i forgot she was acting. Some scenes are so strong that made me feel a bit weird; audience should be prepared... it's not an easy film to watch. I'm afraid it will be hard for the producers to find a distribution in Italy, we are just not used to some films, but I'm sure it will be a hit in other countries.
