Geppetto is an old wood carver who creates a puppet. But something magical happens – the cheeky puppet begins to talk and can walk, run and eat like any young boy. Geppetto calls him Pinocchio, and brings him up as his son.
But Pinocchio finds it hard to be good. Easily led astray, he tumbles from one misadventure to another as he is tricked, kidnapped and chased by bandits through a fantastical world full of imaginative creatures – from the belly of a giant fish, to the Land Of Toys and the Field Of Miracles. His loyal friend, the Fairy, tries to make him see that his dream — to become a real boy — can never come true until Pinocchio finally changes his ways.
Starring Marcello Fonte, Edoardo Pesce, Nunzia Schiano, Adamo Dionisi, Francesco Acquaroli, Alida Baldari Calabria, Gianluca Gobbi, Laura Pizzirani, Giancarlo Porcacchia and Aniello Arena. Directed by Matteo Garrone.

But he’s domineered by one of his customers, Simone, a petty criminal and former boxer who throws his substantial bulk around this tight-knit community at every opportunity. Marcello soon becomes swept up in a criminal plan he wants nothing to do with...
