A romantic comedy about a teenage girl who starts an affair with an older man, the film was directed by well-known novelist Federico Moccia and was produced by Rita Rusic. The film came to Chiesa from Medusa Film. All territories are available outside Italy.
Also brand new on Chiesa's slate is K. Kosoof's transvestitite road movie,
Corazones De Mujer (Women's Heart.) The film, screening in the Berlinale's Panorama, is a true story about a transvestite tailor originally from Morocco and an
Arab bride-to-be who lives in Torino and tries to regain her lost virginity.
An Italian deal to an undisclosed buyer was concluded earlier this week. The filmmakers will announce details of the distributor in Berlin later this week.
The third addition to Chiesa's slate is Francesco Cordio and Paolo Pagnoncelli's Where Clouds Sing, featuring the Inti-Illimani band from Chile and billed as 'a wild ride through Latin music.'
Among the other titles on Chiesa's EFM slate are Silvio Soldini's Giorni e
nuvole, Marco Risi's Maradona The Hand Of God and Anna Negri's second film Riprendimi. Negri's drama was warmly received in Sundance last month. 'The film
marks the emergence of a fresh new voice in Italian cinema,' enthused one
leading LA-based UK critic.
