The Mouth of the Wolf

(La Boca del Lupo)
Pietro Marcello

A man returns home after a long absence. He crosses the town in search of places of times gone by, now in decline, straining to uphold their former ancient glory. In a modest apartment in the old quarter of the city, waiting for him for years are a cold dinner and his life companion. Mary and Enzo have been waiting and wanting each other since they first met behind bars, when they sent each other silent messages. Their dream is a small house in the countryside overlooking the city and the sea, far from the pressures of present times, suspended in another time of never ending happiness.
