What is it about?
Disco, 3.00 a.m.
Youth, music that rumbles in the room, colored lights that divide the faces into many small fragments.
After a shot of absinthe Ambra makes a bet with her friend : pretend to be angry with a girl, to play, to win another shot offered by her friend.
Ambra accepts the challenge but something goes wrong, the girl responds bad to she and Ambra becomes really angry.
The evening ends bad between a blow to the head and a loss of memory caused by alcohol.
Hence the beginning of fiction, of fake feelings and false emotions.
Then the next day, the meeting with the new near, Mattia, an ambiguous man with a curious bowler between the hair and the revelation of his "masks", they will make rouse in Ambra a series of psychic processes and thoughts about pirandellliane masks, fiction and appearance.
The film "AMBRA" is a journey between dream and reality, between the conscious side and dark side, between light and shadow.
The "double" is divided into many fragments, the masks, that hide the well and evil.
Screenwriter Simon Castellani was inspired by the movie "Black Swan" by Darren Afronosky, the main works of Pirandello ("The late Mattia Pascal", "Henry IV", "One, no one and one hundred thousand") and the current reality: men they who rebel against the them way of life, against their tradition and their home.
They have hidden the "rotten" within them with the masks, which at a stretch, however, they break and so all evil enclosed exits from them . An act of horror, an explosion.
