Lavazza IncluCity Festival - Il Silenzio Grande 'The Great Silence'
This film is set in Villa Primic, once a luxurious home, now a creaky old mansion straight out of a ghost story. Reluctantly put up for sale by Mrs. Rose Primic and the two heirs to the Primic's dilapidated fortune, Massimiliano and Adele, the only member of the family who is not happy with the decision is Valerio, the family patriarch. As the story unfolds, Valerio discovers he may never have really known his loved ones and, perhaps, not even himself. Slowly he begins to realize that living is not the same thing as being alive. Journey through 1960s Naples and watch as themes of family, the difficulty of change and the passing of time unfold; through emotional conflicts, silences that explode into a cacophony of words, laughter and sorrow, this film sheds light on one difficult truth: sometimes people talk but not everyone truly listens.
