Yesterday last day of shooting for the film “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” (The Night shift is covered by the stars) and the last take was given by the mountain, with a storm which sent the whole team into the dressing room: it was only fitting that the mountain would write the word “The End” to this lucky film. Last climbing steps by Nastassja Kinski on the Dolomites: the lightest ones so far. Post production will take place in Los Angeles under the direction of Edoardo Ponti, and the mix Pacific Ocean/Dolomites will be worthy of fireworks! Welcome back home to Edoardo, Nastassja, Julian, Enrico. Erri remains in the Dolomites.
The short story by Erri De Luca, “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” (Stars work the night shift) will be soon a short movie: the film, directed by Edoardo Ponti, will be shot this summer in the magnificent landscape of the Dolomites of the Region of Trentino, in Italy. Interpreters are Nastassja Kinski and Enrico Lo Verso along with Erri De Luca himself in a short cameo.
It’s a story about a man and a woman. He is alone. She is married. Both mountaineers, both survivors of cardiac operation. He has in his chest the heart of a young woman, she has a mitral valve. A fate and a promise unites them . A short story where the rhythm of the heartbeat accelerates, to find at the end, a steady pace.
The film is co-produced by OH!PEN with the Trentino Film Commission, Montura and Pasta Garofalo, and with the support of Trentino Marketing and San Carlo.
This summer, it will be an amazing “last-minute” vacation idea, to plan a new kind of trip, following Erri De Luca’s steps, being surrounded by the breathtaking mountains of the Dolomites…let’s go!
Our friend Erri and his wonderful Italian-English…
“A bout de souffle”…
Today my mind goes to the movie “Breathless”…so effortlessly, so breathlessly, it captures the rhythms of its time and place and erases the distance between the now and then. And yet even as Mr. Godard and his cinematographer, Raoul Coutard, record the sights and sounds of Paris with documentary immediacy, the images are infused with an unmistakable nostalgia…bises to Jean and Jean-Paul…
