An idea that comes from Istanbul
The director explains that the film's idea came during a meeting in Istanbul, at dinner with the actress and friend Serra Yilmaz.
There was an anatomist-pathologist who took leave soon because the morning after, very soon, he had to practice an autopsy. He began to think what would happen if he found someone he knew on the table ... This idea no longer left the director who started thinking about the story of his latest film.
Naples and his veil
The choice of Naples not new to directors tries to exalt in this film: its culture, ancient and magical, avoiding the plague, the stereotypes, the folklore, the postcard effect.
The director has also filmed the "Figliata", the ritual in which a man gives birth behind a veil: and the veil, lying on some monuments and paintings of Naples, is the key to understanding the city.
