Burning in the Wind

Directed by Silvio Soldini

A distinct change of pace for director Silvio Soldini after the feelgood comedy BREAD & TULIPS. Tobias has never had a happy nor fulfilling life. From a traumatic childhood to an adulthood comprised of a boring factory job, depressing friends, and his frustrating search for an ideal woman ‘Line’. When she turns out to be real, Tobias’ life finally changes. A triumph of power and insight and one of the year’s most important Italian films. + Introduction This screening will be introduced by Meris Nicoletto, Italian Lecturer at the Manchester Metropolitan University, who will discuss the themes and content of the film in English.
