The super-low budget comedy acclaimed at the Venice Festival

'Orecchie' by Alessandro Aronadio

Italian director Alessandro Aronadio talks about "Orecchie" (ears) which will screen in Melbourne on Sunday.

'Orecchie' in Italian means 'ears' and in fact the movie begins with a man who wakes up  with an annoying ringing sound in his ears.

A note on the fridge says: "Your friend Luigi has died. P.S. I took the car".

The problem is that he does not even remember who this guy Luigi is.

This is just the beginning of a tragicomic day during which he will be plunged into the folly of the world.

'Orecchie', which will screen at Cinema Nova, in Lygon Street Carlton (Melbourne) was written and directed by Palermo, Italy-born Alessandro Arconadio and shot in black and white on a "super-low budget".

Alessandro Aronadio graduated in Psychology in 2001 with his 'Study on the Double in the Cinema of David Cronenberg'. Following this he won the Fulbright "Sergio Corbucci" fellowship for a master program in cinema direc- tion, studying at the Los Angeles Film School.

He worked as AD on several features both in Italy and in the USA with the likes of Luc Besson, Giuseppe Tornatore, Mario Martone, Roberto Andò, Roberta Torre, Ciprì e Maresco.

His 2010 debut feature 'Due Vite per Caso', was the only Italian film in competition at the Berlinale.

'Orecchie' represents the debut as an actor in a movie for Daniele Parisi.
