He was young and had clear eyes ... Synopsis
X is a young director and screenwriter of thirty years in search of the meaning of life. How should life be lived? Of extremes or in the middle?
These are the questions that the protagonist poses every day, who thus finds himself in a whirlwind of situations on the verge of verisimile.
In a world of young Jewish women, perhaps imaginary alien philosophers, failed film producers, lucid dreams, nymphomaniacs, apparent deaths ...
... tennis matches with over 70s, old women with an easy trigger and the memory of a love that is not completely buried.
But everything starts when a mid-winter night, X succubus of insomnia, hears a prolonged scream of a woman.
Her name is Alessandra, with Mediterranean features and a marked tendency to fatality that make it even more fascinating.
The fleeting meeting in the night seems like the first and last, but instead the day after X reaches Alessandra at an appointment where the young woman reveals her nature: clever burglar.
An anomalous burglar, who illegally enters people's homes without stealing anything, but looking for an obsessive treasure unjustly deprived of time.
For X, involved in Alessandra's mission, it will only be the beginning of a series of extraordinary and bizarre events.
The same events, which will lead him, finally, to undertake what seems to him the right path to a life worth living.
X is the name of a thirty year old like many who struggles to make his way into the world of cinema in an Italy that extends between Naples and Rome.
