Piero Cicala is a former singer, a one hit wonder from the Italian summer of 1981. 30 years later he gets a call to participate in a tv show that explores the history of pop culture in recent decades, one episode per year. Piero is now working in a restaurant in a small town on the Italian south-eastern coast. After some reluctance Piero accepts. He appears on tv with mixed success: his new song falls flat but the old hit still works. That night he begins a fling with a young beautiful starlet from Argentina who takes him to America. At an Italian American gathering he finally gets a chance to sing his new intense and dramatic song in its entirety and it is a success. This gives Piero the courage to start a singing career again. It is the story of a man who looks into himself and after a long period of doubt finds his own true value again.
I saw Se sei così ti dico si in milano few weeks ago. I found it a very profound, full of life and actual feature film, a terrific well shoot one. The film was entirely recorded in full hd with incredible Canon D7...a camera!Anyway... Actors are all great and in despite of "usual Italian cast" director Cappuccio uses new faces and the stars, Emilio Solfrizzi and TV starlet Belen Rodriguez are just so well fit in their intense roles that this film...does not look Italian at all...but is a great sharp metaphorical journey about Italy today with a deep bitterness and also funny. I suggest this film. It was not a blockbuster,unfortunately, but for sure is a very good film and will least...ciao! Adriano.
