MORTE DI UN MATEMATICO NAPOLETANO
Renato Caccioppoli is a Pure Maths Professor at Naples University. He is full of problems, after being hospitalized for a while in a psychiatric hospital and being abandoned by his wife. He doesn’t even get along with his fellow party members anymore and lives in a pretty surreal way. His opportunist wife then tries to get back in his life but Renato already lives in another reality and with a gunshot puts an end to his life. Warmly embraced by critics, the movie won the Venice Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize then at the David di Donatello’s both Martone and the actor Claudio Cecchi were awarded. Finally, Martone was awarded for Best director of the year at the Silver Ribbons.
