film profile]. Set in Rome’s former ghetto, this is a film about the intimate dramas experienced by ordinary people. The three main characters are Giovanna, a young woman plagued by uncertainty, who is spied on both by her next-door-neighbour and her husband. As the director says, she will find herself obliged to choose between herself and her passions.
Opzetek says that in his films he tells stories he hears about. He never follows any particular logic but rather he tends to listen to his heart. "I portray the dreams of ordinary people who are not searching for success, but rather for things that will make them happy".
