On a yellowed class photo, between future cinema maestros Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone, there is an anonymous kid. He is the subject of this unorthodox reflection on fame and the appearance of life in the shadow.
For many documentary filmmakers the fact that eighty years ago film composer Ennio Morricone and western director Sergio Leone were in the same class would be the starting point. But Janzée chooses a different track. Who is that unknown classmate between them? What was it like for him not to become famous? Are there any people in this neighbourhood of Rome who used to know him? In the process, the attention shifts to the local hairdresser, a seamstress of film costumes, the current nuns at the school and a taxi driver. This way, the quest turns into a philosophical and poetic reflection on fame, fate and life. And why not ring Morricone’s doorbell, after all?
