I’ve been looking for an image that could represent this concept at its best and finally I found it: two Siamese sisters, on the verge of turning 18, who suddenly find out that they can be separated. Two girls attached by their hip, extremely beautiful to be attractive and at the same time repulsive. I’ve tried to balance attraction and repulsion in each frame I have built for the film. I see the world like this: always on the edge between beauty and ugliness. Being always on this edge, brought me again in Castelvolturno.
I was there already, in fact this film starts where my previous one ended, on the right shore of the Volturno river. That territory is the heart wrenching simulacrum of a lost beauty, a perfect place where I could set the cage from which my two “sweet birds” desperately want to escape. Their dream is a normal life: they want to have an ice cream, go dancing, drink some wine without fearing that the other would get drunk…make love.
Because they’re women.
