Summer Games (Giochi d’Estate)
Switzerland. Dir. Rolando Colla. 2011, 101 mins. DCP. In Italian with English subtitles. Presented by the Consulate General of Switzerland. With Armando Condolucci, Fiorella Campanella, Alessia Barela, Antonio Merone. On summer vacation, everyone tries to be on their best behavior, but it does not take long before the pretense vanishes. So goes the relationship of a blue-collar couple on the brink of divorce because the husband cannot control his violence. It turns out that their son cannot control himself either, as he rules over a group of children at the summer campsite. When he meets a girl in pain because her father has abandoned her, they build a bond and an emotional fortress, pretending that nothing can ever enter their world.
