The Face of Another - Il volto di un ‘altra
Director Pappi Corsicato and writer Daniele Orlando in person for Q&A at both screenings!
In this outrageously mordant satire of celebrity and image-dependant culture, the exuberant host of a popular TV show about plastic surgery is fired with the excuse that the public is tired of her face. After she suffers a serious car accident, her plastic surgeon husband, also the director of an exclusive private clinic from where the TV program is broadcast, seizes the opportunity to claim a fraudulent insurance payoff. Corsicato, a Neapolitan choreographer who was an assistant to Almodóvar, wields in this clever story the same insolent sense of humor as in his previous films, with bizarre, surprising plot twists and over-the-top characters bordering on the ridiculous.
