The arrest of her beloved man, the solidarity of an old friend, exploding memories of the revolt: a judicial error triggers an inner journey, a healing process of the conflict accompanying the disappearance of a father. Two leaders of the “Long ‘68” interpret their own roles in this film set on the border between documentary and scripted narrative.


In the 1960s, Francesca Solari (1950), a filmmaker, producer, and translator, was involved in several far-left movements. Addio Lugano bella reflects on the revolutionary past of Giorgio Bellini, whom she married while he was in prison. She later directed L’Entrefilm (2000), a documentary about Marcel Hanoun’s last film.
