Come te.jpg

Come te

Film Directed by: SIMONE BIANCHI (Genre: Short)

"Fabio is part of a family that is compromised by its "game" addiction. As a result of his behavior, his wife Ilaria decides to remove him from home, also trying to protect Andrea, a ten-year-old girl who is the couple's daughter. The man leads a life on the sidelines, sleeping in the car, drinking and looking for money to play slots like a drug addict. Andrea takes on the emotional weight of his father's situation and by trying to help him, she herself remains a victim of the problems that plague man. History, in addition to describing the drama of how an addiction disrupts a person's life and affections, highlights in a broader sense how all the bonds between parents and children bring with them something that, for better or for worse, will mark us for lifetime."
