- Enzo Ferrari
A film by Carlo Carlei. Starring Sergio Castellitto as Enzo Ferrari. This is the story of the man who created the greatest automobile empire in history, from poverty to riches, through passion, ruthlessness and brutal character. We meet Ferrari as an old man, disturbed by memories of the past and by all the things he lost on his way to success. We see him still tormented and hounded by journalists and paparazzi who, from the start would never leave him in peace. One journalist stands out. Someone who seems to know even the darkest secrets of his past and who is determined to get the final and most intimate interview at all costs. Ferrari succumbs to his incessant demands. Through this interview Ferrari’s life unfolds, as he recounts his early love of racing, the difficult relationship with his father and older brother, his closeness to his mother, and the death of another brother during the war. And he tells of his overbearing dream from a young age to build the fastest, most prestigious and unbeatable racing car of all time. But as the journalist delves deeper into Ferrari’s innermost thoughts, we understand the real price he had to pay for this dream. Continuing on this turbulent ride, the mystery unfolds. There is no journalist confronting him. This is his own conscience that he is facing; that he must contend with before he can make peace with himself. And we fully understand that this has been his greatest battle and the most important victory of his life.
