Whoever crosses the threshold of a mental health institution immediately finds themselves on a different planet. In PIANO SUL PIANETA, Fabrizio Ferraro’s superb black-and-white images create a dystopian tale, suspended in time but hugely restricted in space.
With his poetic gaze, Ferraro follows his protagonists in their perambulations along the paths of an immense garden. Still shots define the living space of these silent, solitary characters, whose stare is fixed on an undefined point. The unreal, deafening noise of heavy traffic, interspersed with the sirens of ghost-like ambulances, alternates with total silence, brief snatches of Baroque music (Corelli) and even with the Communist “Internationale”.
As if pursuing a secret and inscrutable plan – made up of vanishing points and hidden trajectories – the lone protagonists begin to meet up, forming ephemeral couples between whom the exchange of words is always interiorized and entrusted to an off- screen voice. Someone asks: “Are you cold? How can we protect ourselves from the cold?”. Immersed in an almost dreamlike atmosphere, the film’s mystery remains unbroken until the final heart-wrenching revelation – at once bitter observation, denunciation, and cry for help – whose light suddenly blazes forth in the night. (Maria Giovanna Vagenas)
