Directed by Claudio Caligari

Italy 2015 100 mins.

Set in the mid-1990’s in Ostia on the outskirts of Rome, Vittorio and Cesare, two men in their early twenties, share their lives in a world of excess: night clubs, fast cars, and dealing drugs. But as close as they are, their ideas about the path to success start to diverge. Vittorio sees a way out of the hedonism that engulfs them, meets Linda, and, to protect himself, starts to drift away from his soul mate, for which the street remains all. The bonds of friendship are strong, but are they strong enough to maintain a brotherhood? Caligari’s crime drama won eight awards at the Venice International Film Festival, including Best Film.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
