Eric Wolfram's Writing, One Man Up (L'uomo in pił)

One Man Up (L'uomo in pił)

Directed by Paolo Sorrentino

In Naples in the 1980s, two men live parallel lives, never meeting. Tony (Toni Servillo) is a pop singer, adored by millions. Antonio (Andrea Renzi) plays soccer in the first division. They are two men to whom success -- their talent -- came as a gift. Then each experiences a crisis, which takes them on a downhill course, putting their survival skills to the test. Tony faces criminal charges and scandal for bedding an underage groupie, while Antonio has a career-ending injury. Their stories, if not their lives, will affect each other, and in the end, one of them will be redeemed by the redemption of the other.

Preceded by Lines (Righe). 6 min. Dir. Roberto Di Vito.
