Manuel, after having is 18th birthday, gets out of a host community and has to begin his path back to the world after so long. His mother, who is in prison, can get the house arrest only if he accepts to take her with him. It’s a great responsability. There are some movies, which ‘tell’ a story, and others, which ‘live’ the matter we see developing on the screen. This happens in Manuel, where the author, Dario Albertini, helps the young Andrea Lattanzi ‘live’ (rather than ‘play’) the role of Manuel.
