Italian director Pippo Delbono pushes life to the edge in a joyful, cinematic and courageous theatrical portrait, inspired by a collection of essays by Harold Brodkey, an American novelist who died of AIDS. With a cast that includes former street peddlars and those with physical or mental handicaps (one of whom he saved from an asylum), Delbono’s work carries an authentic edge and realness. (
