Lunedì al Cinema // Cover Boy: l'ultima rivoluzione

The story of the friendship between Ioan and Michele, respectively Romanian and Italian. The serendipitous encounter of two worlds apart: the travails of a young man, son of the Post-Communist Revolution, who flees his country in search of a better future and the travails of another youth who instead scrapes along the margins of a Western society that is unable to offer gainful employment to so much of its youth. In the background of this rapport between a simple Romanian youth and his marginalized Italian counterpart, there is a West which on one side is still reeling from the collapse of the Communist ideology and on the other, in the clutches of a Capitalist myth which has increasingly assumed, as it propulsive force, harsh competitiveness and an intensification of social inequality. The film is an account of their shared experiences on the fringes of a prosperous city, tormented by their landlady, and it illustrates how the savagery of a daily dog-eat-dog struggle for survival can be opposed by the bonds of genuine friendship. Ioan's encounter with a famous photographer, and his misjudgment of an exploitive sentiment for love, will ultimately bolster his friendship with Michele and guide him to the final destination of his on-going quest.

Directed by Carmine Amoroso, 2008.
