WITH RICCARDO SCAMARCIO, JASMINE TRINCA
Based on the novel by Margaret Mazzantini, “you can't save yourself alone” is an intense drama about a couple and their different point of view on life.
Gaetano and Delia meet for dinner to discuss the terms of the holiday break of their children. The meal immediately turns into an emotionally charged reflection of the last 10 years which led the separated couple to this sad but realistic point. Throughout several flashbacks, we see the two recount their past. It becomes clear that these two were really in love. Even though they are trying to start new lives, the wounds are still fresh enough to not get over their lives together. But at the end of the encounter, a new dawn gives way to new hope for Delia and Gaetano, sealed even with a kiss between them…
