Acclaimed director Mario Martone (Nostalgia) explores the life and career of the great Italian actor, screenwriter  and director, Massimo Troisi (1953-1994)  Troisi who is still much loved loved for his works in the films I'm Starting from Three (1981) and Il Postino: The Postman (1994), for which he was posthumously nominated for two Oscars. Nicknamed "the comedian of feelings"  he is considered one of the most important actors of Italian theater and cinema an is associated as being intrinsicly Neopilitan (someone fron Naples)   Assembling scenes from Troisi’s films, Martone outlines the artistic curve spanning his career, framing him within the climate of the time in which he worked, and the magical city common to both directors ----you guessed it, Naples.   Intertwined with this collection of memorable film scenes are frank conversations with artists whose careers were influenced by Troisi, including Francesco Piccolo, Paolo Sorrentino, Ficarra and Picone, and critics who wrote about him like Goffredo Fofi, and two of the makers of his posthumous work The Postman (1994), Michael Radford and Roberto Perpignani.   Writer Anna Pavignano, Troisi’s partner in life and career, as co-writer on his films, also provides a first-hand account of his creative process and shares precious unpublished archival materials, revealing how Troisi’s ideas came to life and its one of the many highlights in this very enjoyable film which is essential for all film lovers and those who apprecaite Italian culture.
