Rumori

Posted by

Visually exploring the emotional complexity of a breakup, “Rumori” has at its core how the lack of understanding and communication between two people can destroy a relationship. Introspective, subtle and beautifully melancholic, the short film stands as a summary of the endless conversations and sleepless nights experienced as two people gradually drift apart and disappear from each other’s minds.

Set in a house in the Italian countryside, we find the characters in the film, played by Andrea Arcangeli and Matilda De Angelis, stuck in a loop of internal arguments. They share the same space, yet they are unable to see and perceive one another. They live for each other, yet they are blind to each other’s needs. Feeling trapped and alone within this space, the house becomes a metaphor for their stagnant and decaying relationship.

As a true reflection of our world, “Rumori” argues that to stand still is to disappear. The only way out of a toxic dynamic is to embrace change, transform and move forward.

Directed by Sämen (Italy)
