Directed by Francesca Arcibugi, and from the international bestselling novel by Sandro Veronesi, The Hummingbird delivers an insightful and entertaining narrative of the ancestral force of life and the struggle to resist what sometimes seems unsustainable, even with the powerful weapons of illusion, happiness and cheerfulness.
Direct from its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, this profoundly moving drama follows the life of Marco Carrera (Pierfrancesco Favino, also in Nostalgia) from childhood to adulthood and the relationships along the way.
Featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Nanni Moretti (Three Floors), Kasia Smutniak (also in 3/19) and Berenice Bejo, The Hummingbird follows a life of fatal coincidences, losses and absolute loves.
Based on the strength of memories, the story moves from the early 1970s to the near future.
Along his journey from a platonic love affair by the sea, to marrying a woman in Florence and starting a family, Marco receives the help of his psychoanalyst (Moretti), who teaches him how to welcome the most unexpected changes of direction.
