2003 / 30’
- direction by Elisabetta Sgarbi
- director assistant: Eugenio Lio
- photography by Elio Bisignani
- editing by Luciano Marenzoni
A director who made the Cinema's history - Luciano Emmer - and a writer who, since thirty years, symbolize the conscience, critic and ironic, of women - Erica Jong.
Italy and its Cinema on one side, America and its fight for emancipation on the other.
Both share the will to do something to oppose to the passing of time, the need to give shape to life though Art, the curiosity for the feminine point of view. And then the family, the grandchildren, the same love for Venice…
The confrontation of Luciano Emmer with feminine writing and mentality continues.
After his conversation with Alice Ferney, seen in La conversazione amorosa, Emmer approaches Erica Jong, seats beside her, tells her about his films, in an amusing and intimate conversation, which, little by little - while the camera wraps them, press them, hugs them - sounds the heart of cinema and literature.
