- In inglese: Il film d'esordio del filmmaker iraniano in esilio, Alireza Khatami, sarà presentato in anteprima mondiale al Lido
Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.
The elderly caretaker of a remote morgue possesses an impeccable memory for everything but names. He passes his days showing corpses to those searching for their lost ones and tending to his beloved plants. When protest in a nearby city breaks out and the militia covertly raid the morgue to hide civilian casualties, he discovers the body of an unknown young woman. Evoking memories of personal loss, he embarks on a magical odyssey to give her a proper burial with the help of a mystic gravedigger who collects stories of the dead, an old woman searching for her long-lost daughter, and a hearse driver tormented by his past.
This is the synopsis for Oblivion Verses [+leggi anche:
