The Thief of Shooting Stars: filming by Francisco Saia begins
At eight years old, Camillo Favara known as Milo asks a shooting star for a large chocolate cake. The desire comes true and makes indigestion. At eighteen he asks his star to be able to “kiss, hug and… all the rest” Betty, a charming Italian-American tourist. The two have an intense love affair, but, at the end of the holidays, Betty breaks Milo’s heart, telling him that for her it was just a summer pastime, with no future. Milo thus learns that “when the Gods want to punish us, they grant our wishes”. And, by a strange coincidence of fate, he becomes a thief of shooting stars in order to correct those wishes that could hurt. At forty Milo “steals” the shooting star with Betty’s desire for a child, and is overwhelmed by a whirlwind of emotions.
The director said:
It is a great honor for me to be able to direct a feature film with a large international cast at the age of only twenty-four. I will give all of myself and I will exploit all the experience accumulated over the years of study and apprenticeship to be able to make a great film that will be distributed all over the world, expressing a very nonconformist and surreal directing style and giving great importance to colorimetry, inspired by great artists like Wes Anderson, Tim Burton, Joann Sfar and Steven Spielberg.
The photography of the thief of shooting stars was entrusted to Gabriele and Andrea Bizzoni, while the sets are by Tonino Di Giovanni and the costumes by Flavia Pinello. Many professionals of the troupe are from Milazzo, Catania and Messina, while the entire direction and production department is in Rome. Horcynus Productions has entrusted the executive production of the film to the experienced professional Giuseppe Andreani. Other well-known actors in the Italian film scene will be added to the cast. It is the intention of the production to present the film at the most important international film festivals.
