Look Up

Fulvio Risuleo

Look up, because down here it's always the same. That’s the standpoint of this playful fantasy, the first full-length feature by Fulvio Risuleo, who has previously seen his short work crowned at Cannes.

The young baker, Teco, looks exhausted. But then, during a cigarette break on the rooftop, he sees something curious that irresistibly attracts his attention.  A strange seagull falls from the sky a few houses away. Teco climbs over the fence and sets out to investigate. "Tell the boss I’m ill," he calls to his surprised colleagues.

That’s the start of his escape from the straitjacket of everyday reality, an amazing voice of discovery filled with strange encounters. The labyrinth on the roofs of Rome turns out to shelter a shadow world with surrealist elements. Following in the footsteps of Alice, Teco finds a secret wonderland which could have been conceived with the pleasure and uninhibited imagination of a child.
