Intrepido: A Lonely Hero (L'intrepido)

Rated NR 104 min. 2015

Set in modern day Milan, INTREPIDO: A LONELY HERO is a Chaplinesque odyssey through the world of work - every type of work, but primarily unskilled manual labour - as seen through the eyes of a kind, middle-aged man who takes on every conceivable temporary job. Beautifully wrought by master Italian director Gianni Amelio, the film is a portrait of the highs and lows of modern life. At its heart is a sympathetic man who, despite loneliness and personal family problems, especially around his gifted but troubled musician son, remains defiantly optimistic even when terrible things happen to him and the people he meets. With echoes of films such as Being There and Zelig, INTREPIDO is gently satirical and acutely observed while retaining the atmosphere of a classic fable.
