A real genre bender, thist is a story of love. It is at one time, a fantasy tale, an explicit sex odyssey, a love story, a comedy: it is an experience for soul and body. It caters to different audiences, and it has a strong international appeal.
Magic and spirits leave behind dusty books and gothic settings to come into life in Bari, a modern city with an ancient tradition. “Everything is full of ghosts, if you know how to look” says the main character’s best friend, before plunging him into a world of beauty and horror that intermingles with the reality we think we know. It is a world of a subtle magic, made of coincidence more than flashy lights of perceptions more than super-powers. A subtle magic; but powerful, as all subtle things.
This is a story that will make you feel, will make you fear and will touch your soul.
The film is based on the book “The girl of my dreams” by Francesco Dimitri. Dimitri is an author of fantasy novels, non-fiction and comic books. He is described by critics as “one of the most significant writers of non-fiction and fantasy novels in the current generation.”
