Two brothers, an exuberant father and an invisible mother. A family of farmers from an Alpine valley where life is rough, as well as manners. The younger son, Gim, is discovering his homosexuality, but the world around him, especially his father, just can't accept that. So the elder son Alex is stuck in the middle, on one hand encouraging Gim to overcome all his fears, on the other trying to continue the tradition of the fathers. In such an exasperated context is hard to recognize the love hidden behind. Will they be able to keep on living together?
In “Vergot”, Cecilia Bozza Wolf’s first film, family relationships between men are at the heart of a painful tension arising from a young man’s yearning for love and understanding. From the outset, the camera’s perspective shows a shared participation and observation that is discreet yet intimate. Cecilia Bozza Wolf has chosen a non-chronological narrative to describe the fragility of those who are gradually about to discover an identity different from what is expected by their traditional, marginal, highland milieu. A delicate, intimate tale, confided to a small team, offering us the portrait of a world made up of multiple solitudes.
