The Man Without Guilt
Angela is a dedicated and sensitive carer. She is a widow. Her husband, as many other workers in the area, died from asbestos-related diseases. When the man responsible for the many deaths, now crippled, is hospitalised, she accepts his son’s offer to become his caregiver, hoping to take her revenge.
This is the beginning of a journey for Angela, a journey into the tragedy of her loss, her suffering and her hatred. This clever script shies away from an easy plot, creating characters that are at the same time victims and executioners. Angela is taking her revenge but there is no easy way out of her past.
Director Ivan Gergolet’s first narrative feature has the elements of a thriller but it is capable of delivering a complex portrait of a woman’s emotions in the face of an avoidable tragedy. Thanks to the great performance by lead actress Valentina Carnelutti, Gergolet manages to capture the multi-layered psychological ordeal that lives in victims, but also the redemptive power of a human connection.
