Chi L’ha Visto follows the story of a young half Italian who grew up with his mother in Germany. Now, after 25 years, he goes on the search for his real father.
However, lies that have built up around his father prevent him from recognizing his true belonging.
A haunting, calmly photographed road movie with a clear sense of beauty of the landscapes of North Italy circling around questions of personal as well as national identity. A refined reflection about how lost family members influence the life of those left behind and even control it.
The more improbable the ‘findability’ of the missing person, the stronger do they determine the ‘mental maps’ of those left behind. (Jan Kedves)
