Unlike most films set in Naples, Nostalgia shows the city like we have never seen it before: from the melancholy perspective of someone who left forty years ago. Felice Lasco returns to his hometown from his adoptive city of Cairo to see his mother. Soon enough, his desire to reconnect with his past begins to take him into more dangerous territory. Learning that his childhood best friend Oreste has become one of the most feared men of the Camorra does not discourage Felice from trying to meet him. Could it be possible for these two men, who share a terrible secret, to make peace?Nostalgia premiered in the main competition in Cannes in 2022. Mario Martone’s films such as Death of a Neapolitan Mathematician, Nasty Love or Leopardi were screened and won awards in Cannes and Venice.
