Padrone E Sotto

UK Premiere


 “Cheerful, funny and poetic at the same time…a warm hearted portrait of a man’s world, over which reigns a lady.”- faustkultur.de and Filmbulletin.

A personal and exquisite film that follows the life of an earthy bunch of Italian nomads living their lives around beer, hunting, and fraternizing. They simply just want to get by… even if it’s not with each other.

Synopsis
A small, shabby bar in the deep south of Italy. A group of men play ‘Padrone E Sotto’, an archaic drinking game. The film looks into a closed society of residents from a forgotten town and unearths characters and stories that have integrity, harsh soul and a whimsical charm.
