La solitudine dei numeri primi by Saverio Costanzo( Visual )

"Primary numbers can only be divided by one or by themselves. They are solitary numbers and are incomprehensible to others. Alice and Mattia are both "primary numbers", both persecuted by tragedies which have marked their childhoods: a skiing accident in the case of Alice, which has led to a defect in one leg; the loss of a twin sister in the case of Mattia. When as teenagers they meet in the school corridor, they recognise each other's pain. As they grow up their destinies interweave and they form a special bond, until Mattia, having graduated in Physics, decides to accept a job abroad. The two separate for many years and only a sequence of events will bring them back together, bringing back to the surface a number of emotions never confessed."--Http://

But the veneer of his perfect life is abruptly cracked when his only son Andrea (Enrico Oetiker) brings the family together for an important announcement; it's not a heavily speculated-upon declaration relating to his sexuality, but rather to his father's great horror his intention to abandon his medical studies to become a priest!

Andrea e Giulia hanno quarant'anni, un figlio adorato, una tata smaniosa, tanta serenità e poca voglia di fare sesso. Voglia perduta negli anni, dentro il quotidiano, dietro la consuetudine, tra una casa al mare e un'altra in città. Apatica lei, distratto lui, per Andrea e Giulia non è mai il momento giusto per consumare, meglio un fumetto o una rivista di gossip. La visita improvvisa di Max, porno divo residente (e operativo) a Hollywood, sollecita la loro indolenza, costringendoli a fare i conti con le troppe notti 'in bianco'. Amico di vecchia data di Giulia e amatore per professione, Max non lesinerà in suggerimenti e consigli per l'uso, disinibendo le inibizioni ed eccitando la fantasia. Tra anelli vibranti e preservativi ritardanti, il piacere non tarderà a venire. (Mymovies)

Gioia è una ragazza rom. Vive con la sua famiglia in una casa popolare a Falchera, periferia storica di Torino. Il padre, da buon capofamiglia, è autoritario ma soprattutto angosciato dall'avere una figlia diciottenne ancora zitella! Dall'età di quattordici anni tutte le cugine di Gioia hanno formato una famiglia, mentre lei continua a rifiutare pretendenti su pretendenti, con grande preoccupazione dei suoi familiari. Armando, suo padre, non può credere che Gioia si comporti proprio come una gagè, termine che indica tutti i non rom . Il comportamento di Gioia - portare i pantaloni anziché la gonna, non volere il matrimonio - desta continuo scandalo nella comunità rom e mina la sua autorevolezza di padre. Se la comunità tratta Gioia come una gagè, per gli italiani resta soltanto una zingara. La ragazza è nata a Torino, ma, per incomprensibili motivi burocratici, non può ottenere la cittadinanza. Gioia si ritrova ad essere doppiamente emarginata e nonostante l'ostinata ribellione, la sua vita appare senza prospettive, né sogni. L'unica sua confidente è Morena, una ragazzina che abita nel suo stesso quartiere. Figlia di italiani, Morena gode di tutta la libertà dei gagè, ed è lei a convincere Gioia a partecipare ad un casting per il ruolo di comparsa in uno spot pubblicitario. Inizialmente l'unico scopo è guadagnare un po' di soldi, ma una volta sul set Gioia scopre che quel mondo può o ff rirle tutto ciò che cerca. Finalmente la ragazza ha un sogno: vuole diventare regista! Spinta da Morena, Gioia si rivolge ad Alessandro, il meccanico del suo quartiere che diventerà suo amico, confidente e mentore.
