Bruno and Duša, two elderly people, live in the same nursing home. They share the same everyday routines and enjoy their time together. They look like an old couple, except that sometimes it seems like they are meeting for the first time. Bruno´s memory has become an unreliable map. He gets confused and lost, forgetting his previous encounters with Duša. His past tends to resurface violently, causing him to run in search of people and things long gone.
Sanremo is beautifully shot, with fine acting and a slow pace. It tells the touching story of a fragile relationship, painting an atmospheric and emphatically humane, yet unsentimental, picture of old age and its failings.
The film premiered in the Official Competition at the Tallinn Black Nights IFF 2020 and is Slovenia's candidate for Oscars.
