6 Giorni sulla terra, 6 Days on Earth

by Marianne Wi

Director: ”6 Giorni sulla terra”, ”6 Days on Earth” directed by Varo Venturi, he was born in Rome and that is just about the only information I can find about this gentleman on the web, not for him a long informative entry in Wikipedia. It is Venturi’s second feature after ”Nazareno” (2007) that made it on to six Italian Film Festivals and won awards too. Venturi’s latest film “6 Days on Earth” was screened on on the 17th of June 2011, as always I am sending love to the good people who makes those important choices. ”6 Days on Earth” is a well made Italian Science Fiction about Aliens, who are not as expected arriving from space BUT are here already inside all of us, I am not keen on this notion however it does explains a lot of aches and pains of late. These badass aliens are not friendly, so do not be fooled by their exterior which looks very much like ”Paul” the funny, intelligent good for a laugh Alien directed by Greg Mottola starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Venturis film is not my cup of tea to be honest I did not enjoy ”’The Exorcist” either so I have been so bold as to borrow the synopsis from Wikipedia, am I being lazy? Yes, I am a little sorry. Laura Glavan did a great job in this film, really good it is her 3rd feature, I hope it will propel her upwards and onwards.

Synobsis : Dr. Davide, a courageous scientist, has been studying thousands of cases related to alien abductions, obtained by the abductees under hypnosis, the unsettling thesis that some extraterrestrial races have been installing for millennia their active memories in the abducted people’s brains, in order to “live” through them in this dimension, exploiting a special human energy: the Soul… But when the scientist will decide to help Saturnia, a seductive eighteen-old girl that believes she has been abducted, and shows a clear attraction for him – he will have to face an insurmountable problem: once hypnotized, Saturnia will not leave anymore the trance condition, giving place to Hexabor of Ur – an alien entity coming from Mesopotamian ages that consider himself an half-god. This will be complicated by the unexpected discovery that Saturnia belong to a wealthy black aristocracy’s family…
