Alternate Titles: Paolo Conte, via con me
Roberto Benigni, Patrice Leconte, Jane Birkin, Isabella Rossellini
A music icon that moves “Body and Soul”, Conte has been compared to Tom Waits and Randy Newman by the New York Times and is one of the greatest singers in the province of the world – to quote his song lyrics “La provincia del mondo”. The documentary forms an ideal itinerary with Luca Zingaretti (The Inspector Montalbano mystery series) as narrator, telling the story of an eclectic, mysterious character. Verdelli has drawn on Conte’s immensely rich personal archive and combined ad hoc material: interviews, filmed footage of international tours and special moments making up a unique career. There is also an extraordinary collection of individual stories and recollections from Roberto Benigni, Pupi Avati, Isabella Rossellini, Jane Birkin, Patrice Leconte.
