Comedy, by Michele Fratucello, Italy, 2020.
Diego and Federica, Roberto and Laura are two pairs of friends who face the period of the Covid lockdown in the opposite way. The former calmly accept the limitations of freedom they find themselves living in, Roberto and Laura suffer more from the cloister and begin to develop neurotic disorders that gradually worsen with the passing of the days in an escalation that makes the situation degenerate.
The director takes his cue from the 2020 lockdown and from the upheaval it generated to investigate through the lens of interpersonal relationships the ways that each of us develops to deal with life and changes: how many and which "realities" we invent so as not to question what we are experiencing and what surrounds us? How precarious is each reality that we invent? What is the borderline between a behavior that is considered strange and one that is not considered such? The construction of the film, the vicissitudes of the protagonists, the irony and the rhythm of the story stimulate the rise of these questions, and from a slow start that describes the stasis of the quarantine, the rhythm becomes more and more frenetic to describe the degeneration of relationships, relationships and communication between people.
