I demoni di San Pietroburgo, 2007, 118’, di Giuliano Montaldo

Con Miki Manojlovic, Carolina Crescentini, Roberto Herlitzka, Anita Caprioli, Filippo Timi.

On a mist-shrouded day in 1860, Fjodor Mikhajlovic Dostojevskij arrives at a psychiatric hospital in St. Petersburg to meet a presumed crazy man, Gusiev, who had contacted him by mail.  The young man confesses to his beloved author that he is guilty of having taken part in the terrorist act that recently assassinated the prince and that he is preparing the murder of the grand duke.  The project includes the annihilation of the entire royal family and the only way to foil the plot is to stop the leader of the rioters, a woman by the name of Aleksandra.  Distressed by this information, and pressured by the villain to whom he must deliver a novel within five days, Dostojevskij engages in an battle with his demons: guilt, doubt, the past, sickness.  Giuliano Montaldo returns to cinema, finally presenting a project that tormented him for a long time: the story of a man confronted with History. Click here to RSVP.
