The Shine of Day
Films in Program
Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel’s much-anticipated follow-up to their La Pivellina is again a gritty, semi-improvised serio-comic feature about how sudden connections can alter one’s structured life. Here the conflict is between an aging circus performer (award-winner Walter Saabel) and the nephew, a famous theatre actor (Philipp Hochmair), he visits. Winner, Best Actor, Locarno 2012.
