In the Summertime

Durante l'estate

Directed by Ermanno Olmi
Italy, 1971


Our hero’s a polite, shy, middle-aged man, that lives for drawing up coats of arms & conferring phony patents of nobility on guileless citizens. His coats of arms are intended as outward signs of an inward state. Meeting a door-to-door saleswoman, he assures her that her too is a bonafide princess.
