Apnea

by Roberto Dordit Fiction Italia 2004 93'

The death certificate stated heart attack as the cause of death of Franz, former fencing champion turned successful tanning factory owner. The news comes painfully unexplainable to Paolo (Claudio Santamaria), Franz's old friend and sports companion. His suspicions raised, the taciturn Paolo begins investigating the circumstances surrounding his friend's death, leading him into the world of the wealthy industrialist families of northeast Italy, where the work ethic is as strong as unscrupulousness is rife, where advanced technologies and occupational hazards are equally accepted but the latter hidden behind a façade of efficiency and opulence, buried in undiscoverable secrecy. In this intriguing enquiry film, Santamaria skilfully plays his role to bring out the issues of work-related accidents, exploitation of illegal workers and industrial waste pollution. <%YOUTUBE=u42tPwhISh0%>
