''Retour en Italie'' - ''Leonora addio'' by Paolo Taviani



''Retour en Italie'' - ''Leonora addio'' by Paolo Taviani

Pirandello died leaving precise arrangements: no funeral or celebration. In the end, the funerals were three. The film tells the story of the adventurous journey of Pirandello’s ashes from Rome to Agrigento, among accidents, meetings and visions. A plane didn’t take off because of old superstitions; a train slowly traveled towards the South. At last, Pirandello’s ashes were thrown from a rock overlooking the Sicilian sea, creating the shape of a nail; “The Nail” was Pirandello’s last work, inspired by a murder in Brooklyn and by the character of Bastianeddu, who already appeared in “Chaos”.

''Retour en Italie'' is a new cycle of films, born from the collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal and the Cinéma du Musée, dedicated to the discovery of the new production of Italian cinema by offering the latest films by directors who are already part of the history of cinema such as Taviani and Tornatore; and the works of a new and sharp cinema like that of Frammartino and the Alessio Rigo duo of Righi and Matteo Zoppis.
