Cover Boy (2006)

Sobre o filme

The serendipitous encounter of two worlds apart: the travails of Ioan, a Romanian young man, son of the Post-Communist Revolution, who flees his country in search of a better future, and the travails of another youth, the Italian Michele, who instead scrapes along the margins of a Western society that is unable to offer gainful employment to so much of its youth. In the background of this rapport between a simple Romanian youth and his marginalized Italian counterpart, there is a West which on one side is still reeling from the collapse of the Communist ideology and on the other, in the clutches of a Capitalist myth which has increasingly assumed, as it propulsive force, harsh competitiveness and an intensification of social inequality. Ioan`s encounter with a famous photographer and his misjudgment of an exploitive sentiment for love, will ultimately bolster his friendship with Michele and guide him to the final destination of his on-going quest.
