Darker Than Midnight

Più buio di mezzanotte

Davide is different from the other teenagers. Something makes him look like a girl. Davide is fourteen when he runs away from home. His intuition leads him to choose Villa Bellini, a park in Catania, as a refuge.

MUBI's take

Newcomer Davide Capone’s sublime performance perfectly captures the fast-evolving inner struggle of the androgynous lead character. Filled with youthful escapism, Darker Than Midnight is a freewheeling revelation and a shining example of what Italian queer cinema is capable of today.
