Basilicata Coast to Coast
Comedy, 2009, 105 mins
Director: Rocco Papaleo
Conceived as part publicity stunt, part bonding trip, a group of musicians and a reluctant journalist set off on a ten-day trek by foot to cross the region of Basilicata (coast to coast) to reach the Scanzano Jonico Festival where they are scheduled to perform. Along the way, the members stumble upon an array of unforeseen circumstances and oddball locals that lead them to examine their own personal paths in life and perhaps reconsider what still lies ahead. With Basilicata's imposing beauty as a backdrop, this musical road-trip comedy reminds us that it is not about the destination but the journey.
Cast: Alessandro Gassmann, Paolo Briguglia, Max Gazzè, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Rocco Papaleo, Claudia Potenza, Michela Andreozzi, Antonio Gerardi, Augusto Fornari, Gaetano Amato
