Euforia / Euphoria
by Valeria Golino
Two brothers, two worlds: Matteo is a successful entrepreneur who loves and lives the Roman party life always enjoying being the centre of attention. His older brother Ettore, on the other hand, still lives in their small home village. Plagued by a constant fear of failure, he is making ends meet as a teacher. When Ettore is diagnosed with a serious illness, Matteo decides to bring his brother to Rome for the duration of the therapy. For the first time, the two very different men are confronted with each other’s differing priorities. Valeria Golino's second work, a perfect balance of humour and tragedy, tells of the invisible bond that connects siblings with one another.
