Don't think about it

NON PENSARCI

a film by :Gianni Zanasi

Stefano Nardini has been playing music since he was five years old. Moving on from the Music Conservatory to becoming a fairly successful independent punk rock star. However those times have passed, and he is no longer featured on the front cover of magazines, at the age of 36 he is taking a look around : he plays in a band with a wild bunch of twenty year olds. He no longer has a real bed to sleep in or a girlfriend. All he has left is a guitar and a car with doors that don't always open... So the time has come for him to find shelter, go back to his family that he has not seen in a long time, and think about his life. At home, everything has changed. His father, having suffered a heart attack, now only plays golf. His mother goes to a 'sciamanic journey' seminars, Michela his younger sister has left everything behind to go work in an Aquarium for dolphins, and then there is Alberto, his older brother who has taken upon the 'terrible' responsibility of keeping the family spirit going, working in the family's factory which produces cherries. Right away taken off guard from a series of revelations and family discoveries all the more incredible, Stefano finds himself unwillingly faced with taking care of everyone and everything. In the end, this is exactly how he finally realises, it is time to take care of himself.

French Synopsis :

Petite star du rock punk indépendant, Stefano Nardini a trente six ans et dresse le bilan : il y a bien longtemps qu’il ne fait plus les couvertures des magazines, sa fiancée le trompe et il n’a plus de lit où dormir ; il lui reste sa guitare et une voiture aux portières bloquées... En somme, le moment est venu de prendre le temps de réfléchir, de chercher un refuge, de retourner vers sa famille qu’il n’a pas vue depuis des années. Mais à la maison, tout a changé. Le père, remis d’un infarctus, a lâché les rênes de son entreprise pour se consacrer au golf, la mère assiste à des séminaires de « techniques chamaniques », Michela, la jeune sœur a lâché la fac pour s’occuper de dauphins dans un parc aquatique et Alberto, le frère aîné, a endossé la « terrible » responsabilité de l’entreprise familiale de cerises à l’eau de vie au bord de la faillite... Stefano se retrouve bien malgré lui obligé de s’occuper de tout le monde. Tant et si bien qu’il finira, sans même s’en rendre compte, par s’occuper aussi de lui-même.
