The film, based on Bertante’s novel, tells of a near (or very near) future in which humanity is left without electricity and civilization is in shambles. Even, in a village in the mountains, a mysterious girl appears, in whose presence inexplicable things happen and who builds a new and strong relationship with nature. The story gives a new and unprecedented perspective on the relationship between man and nature: the wolf is not the obvious “bad wolf” of some fairy tales, quite the contrary.
The film, as explained by Rossi Besso, has the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Trentino Film Commission. “He talks about the relationship between man and nature as it can be in a world without energy” and for this production he deliberately chose Ala and Vallarsa, the lands where the wolf first appeared in Trentino. The film is designed for the general public and specifically targets young people; It was previously purchased by Sky and will be distributed in cinemas; It can develop into a chain. Rossi Besso said the Trentino shootings would last seven weeks and would have repercussions for the region “for hundreds of thousands of euros”. Extras, crew, hotels and hospitality will be included.
The cast includes many famous faces of the Italian audience: Sarah Sioca is very young Nina, then Sergio Rubini, Cesare Pucci (famous for playing the role of Montalbano’s deputy), Sandra Chicarelli, David Silvestri, Caterina Gabanella. Director Antonio Besso.
