Let’s discover the best titles, passing from Catalonia by Neus Ballús in The handyman all’oscura Trieste of L’angelo dei muri, in addition to the anime Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the comedy by Andrea Zalone The most beautiful day and the celebratory restoration of the great classic Lo they called Trinity.

The angel of the walls

by Lorenzo Bianchini. With Pierre Richard, Iva Krajnc, Gioia Heinz, Arthur Defays

The monotony of the days and the flat existence of Pietro in his apartment undergo a strong shake when the eviction order arrives. The elderly man does not want to leave his home and decides to build a wall at the end of the corridor in order to create a space in which to continue living. In this dark cave with only a hole to breathe and spy on the outside, his life becomes a constant anxiety awaiting the arrival of the new tenant, from whom he hopes not to be discovered. The day a mother and her daughter appear desperate for an apartment, everything changes. In a dark Trieste and an even darker hiding place, a supernatural thriller takes shape, where the real protagonist (the house) is constantly threatened from the outside by wind, noise and potential tenants.

The handyman

by Neus Ballús, with Mohamed Mellali and Valero Escolar

Moroccan immigrant Moha starts working in a small plumbing company in Barcelona under the guidance of Pep, whom he will have to replace when the latter soon retires. However, the man does not like the chief plumber Valero, who in reality cannot accept the abandonment of his partner. Moha will have a week to change his mind and gain his trust.
The film by Neus Ballús (Catalan director daughter of a plumber) is an insight into the distrust of others that poisons people, regardless of the reason.

The most beautiful day

by Andrea Zalone, with Paolo Kessisoglu, Luca Bizzarri, Violante Placido, Valeria Bilello, Stefano De Martino, Lodo Guenzi, Massimo De Lorenzo, Fiammetta Cicogna

Aurelio is an unhappy wedding planner who wants to conquer Valeria and change her life. Before her, however, he must sell her company and deal with Giorgio, her husband. When he manages to find an agreement with Doctor Musso for the sale of The Most Beautiful Day, he discovers that the last wedding he will have to organize is the one for the buyer’s daughter. Everything will therefore depend on this wedding, the success of which is constantly endangered by misunderstandings and too many people. Luca and Paolo are the protagonists of a comedy that plays on all the tensions that go through marriage, what should be “the best day” of one’s life. The director is Andrea Zalone, author and indispensable comic shoulder of Maurizio Crozza for years.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 – The Movie

by Sung Hoo Park

As a child, Yuta Okkotsu saw his best friend Rika die before his eyes, with whom he had promised eternal love. Having become a spirit, Rika has always remained by her side, but in the form of a vengeful monster. To control this thirst for revenge, Yuta turns to an occult arts institute, where he meets Maki Zen’in, Toge Inumaki and Panda. Together they will face the
threat of the black sorcerer Suguru Geto, expelled from school and determined to eliminate the human race. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 resumes Akutami’s original manga presenting itself as a sort of prequel to the famous animated series (also directed by Sung Hoo Park). The story of Yuta collects all the darkest colors and the shōnen spectacularity of the Rising Sun.

They Call Me Trinity

by Enzo Barvoni, with Terence Hill and Bud Spencer

The celebratory restoration of one of the cornerstones of Italian cinema, which thus returns to the cinema more than 50 years after its release. The fourth film by the couple Bud Spencer – Terence Hill was a real breaking point for the spaghetti western genre, contaminated by a freedom, a comedy and an intelligent parody that will make Trinity an authentic icon.
