Things from Another World
Cose dell’altro mondo
2011 Comedic drama Italian with English subtitles 86 mins

2011 Venice Film Festival: New trends in Italian Cinema.

Bigoted businessman Mariso Golfetto (Diego Abatantuono) uses his self-funded television channel to preach racism and repatriation, at the same time leading a double life visiting a black prostitute. Railing against migrant workers on his nightly programme, he calls for a ‘purifying tsunami’ during a mysterious thunderstorm. By the following morning, one million migrants throughout Italy have vanished.

Chaos ensues. Hospitals and factories close, food is rationed as delivery vans and trucks are found abandoned on motorways. In Golfetto’s hometown of Mestre, rubbish quickly piles up and pensioners, without their carers, are left to wander the streets. In the midst of it all, Detective Ariele Verderame (Valerio Mastandrea) reluctantly tries to find Nadim, his ex-partner’s lover and father to her unborn child.

Addressing bigotry and hypocrisy through dramatic irony and satire, ‘Things From Another World’ is a highly entertaining black comedy on immigration, one of the most politically sensitive and divisive issues of contemporary global society.
