“An elegiac road movie set in a radiant version of Sicily following in the tracks of the island’s legends … Sugar-coated and colourful—think sweet cassata with candied fruit.”Camillo De Marco, Cineuropa
Zavvo Nicolosi’s feature debut is a lively, engaging, often hilarious road movie starring popular Sicilian singers Colapesce and Dimartino (whose music videos Nicolosi directs). The film is the fictional story of two friends who share a certain musical past (very meta!) as they embark on an unusual journey to Sicily. As they travel across the legendary island and its villages, towns, and cities, not to mention the volcanic Mount Etna, they have odd, absurdist encounters with decidedly eccentric characters. Influenced by the road movies of Wim Wenders and Aki Kaurismäki, with nods to Wes Anderson’s whimsical humour, The Spring of My Life is a colourful cinematic and musical confection—a trip to Sicily you won’t soon forget.
