Biography
He was born in Naples in 1970. His first full-length feature, One Man Up, was selected at the 2001 Venice Film Festival, achieved three nominations for the David di Donatello Awards (the Italian Academy Awards) and won the Nastro d’Argento (the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists Awards) for Best First Time Director. In 2004, he directed The Consequences of Love, selected in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and acclaimed by both Italian and international critics. The film won many important Italian awards, including five David di Donatello awards: for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Cinematography. Three years later, his third film, The Family Friend, was also selected in Competition at Cannes. In 2008, another collaboration with Toni Servillo, Il Divo, became his third film to be selected in Competition at Cannes, winning the Jury Prize. The film was nominated for Best Make-Up at the Academy Awards and won seven David di Donatello, five Ciak d’Oro and five Nastri d’Argento awards. In 2010, he published his first novel, Hanno tutti ragione, which was warmly received by both critics and public and was short-listed for the Premio Strega, the most prestigious Italian literature award. This Must Be The Place, Sorrentino’s first English language feature, marks his fourth film in Competition at Cannes.

The Consequences of Love / Paolo Sorrentino

Everyone has an unmentionable secret. But Titta di Girolamo has more than one. Otherwise why would a fiftyyear- old man, from southern Italy, want to live for eight years in an anonymous hotel room in an anonymous town in the Italian part of Switzerland? Eight years without working. Years of silence and cigarettes, years perched in the lobby or the hotel bar, elegantly dressed, but never allowing himself any luxuries. An atrocious routine, eternally waiting for something daring to happen. What on earth will happen? Titta observes, impassively peers at the life that goes by in front of him, revealing no sentiment, no emotion. Or so it seems. He no longer has anyone. He is alone. A lost man. Lost for years in contemplation of something hidden. What is it? And why? What, then, are Titta Di Girolamo’s unmentionable secrets?
