La misura del confine,”Where is the Border” (Possible English Title)

by Marianne Wi

La misura del confine, The Measure of the Border (Possible English Title) more likely to be named “Where is the Border ?”.

Director:  Andrea Papini, is virtually unknown here in Italy although he has one feature under his belt “La velocità della luce”, “The Speed of Light” 2008, it did not travel well. Papini was born in Piedmont, studied in Milan where he graduated as a Civil Engineer, he is the current President and founder of the satellite network “Microcinema”. I liked this easy-going drama in the Italian alps with stunning views galore.

Cast: Paolo Bonanni, Peppino Mazzotta, Thierry Toscan, Beatrice Orlandini, Giovanni Guardiano, Adriana Ortolani, Tommaso spinelli, Luigi Iacuzio, Roland Alberti, Massimo Zordan, Lorenzo degli Innocenzi

Synobsis:  We have a body, we need an exact border between Switzerland and Italy to establish who has jurisdiction and who can put a claim on the frozen corps, first believed to be very old and therefore good for tourism. Enter 2 surveyors one Swiss one Italian and their back-up teams. The Hotel  on top of the world has stunning views and is run by a young couple with a German shepherd who can both cook ( thats the couple only, not the couple and the dog). We follow some gentle detective work in form of old photos and some well preserved reception books, trying to establish the identity of the body, not quite as old as was first thought. This is not sitting on the edge of your seat sort of a thriller more a gentle Mrs Marble ………
