- Based on the British series Gold Digger, the romantic thriller stars Monica Guerritore and Giacomo Gianniotti, is produced by Cattleya and will stream from 2024
Shooting of Inganno, the new Netflix series helmed by Neapolitan director Pappi Corsicato (Il seme della discordia [+see also:
film profile], About Face [+see also:
film profile], out of competition at the last Turin Film Festival with Perfetta illusione [+see also:
film profile]), began a few days ago on the Amalfi Coast. Inganno is a series produced by Cattleya (part of ITV Studios) and is based on the British series Gold Digger, created and written by Marnie Dickens and produced by Mainstreet Pictures.
The screenplay is by Teresa Ciabatti (Three Steps Over Heaven, Cosmonaut [+see also:
film profile]), Eleonora Cimpanelli (Sirley [+see also:
film profile]), Flaminia Gressi (the Circeo series) and Michela Straniero (the Sul più bello [+see also:
film profile] trilogy). This sentimental thriller plays between suspense, the breaking of taboo and uncomfortable truths about love. It is the story of a passionate relationship, in which there is no shortage of shadows and secrets, that challenges social conventions and family balances, subverting the role of motherhood in Mediterranean culture. The main characters are embodied by veteran film, TV and theatre actress Monica Guerritore and Giacomo Gianniotti, recently seen in the role of Diabolik in Diabolik - Ginko all'attacco! [+see also:
film profile] directed by the Manetti Brothers.
Gabriella is the owner of a prestigious hotel on the Amalfi Coast, an elegant woman, proud of her sixties and aware of her role. Her three children are now grown up and life no longer seems to hold many surprises in store for her, until she meets Elia: a charming, vital, free-spirited boy, the same age as her eldest son, who exerts an irresistible, but also ambiguous and frightening charm on her. Despite the age difference, Gabriella rediscovers herself as a woman, a lover, and for Elia she is ready to put everything on the line, even her relationship with her children and their inheritance.
Inganno will be released exclusively on Netflix in 2024.
