Giovanni, a prolific, pedantic Roman movie director who has just started shooting ‘A Brighter Tomorrow’, a new period drama following an Italian Communist branch leader and his secretary who are thrown into existential chaos by the Soviet Union’s 1956 invasion of Hungary. But everything, both personal and professional, seems to be conspiring against Giovanni: His 40-year marriage and working relationship with Paola is in crisis, his French co-producer Pierre is on the verge of bankruptcy, and—even before its completion—the commercial prospects of his new film in a rapidly changing market are decidedly uncertain. It may be time for Giovanni to start rethinking his stringent way of doing things.
