Watch now: “Ti mangio il cuore,” the new film by Pippo Mezzapesa starring Elodie

Based on the book of the same name by Carlo Bonini and Giuliano Foschini, it is finally possible to go and see Ti mangio il cuore in Italian cinemas. This film-which tells of a tragic love story-has already grossed 478,000 euros in its first 3 weeks of showing. Directed by Italian director Pippo Mezzapesa, Ti mangio il cuore features a stellar cast, from Francesco Di Leva to Michele Placido to the famous Italian singer Elodie, who is making her debut as a film performer.

This film set in the Gargano is predominantly about the Fourth Mafia, the two families Malatesta and Camporeale. These two families vie for the terrirory and have been rivals for a long time, however, the feud between them will seem to be rekindled the moment Andrea Malatesta, heir to the Mafia family of the same name, and Marilena, wife of the Camporeale boss, fall in love. I’ll Eat Your Heart, the tale of a forbidden and impossible love.

The film is entirely shot in black and white and set in an Apulia, a rural setting where the protagonists live together with sheep and pigs. Mezzapesa’s direction appears extreme, brave and brutal perhaps in some sections. But it is precisely this mode of storytelling that makes it so much more authentic. Among the curiosities regarding this new film, the soundtrack entitled Bullets is a song written and composed by Elisa, Elodie, Joan Thiele and Emanuela Triglia. The video for this song – sung by Elodie – was shot in the salt pans of Margherita di Savoia. Among the well-known songs already included in the film we noted Tu sì ‘na cosa grande by Modugno, Dragostea din tei by Haiducii and Calma e sangue freddo by Luca Dirisio.

For all those who like to watch movies from the comfort of the couch, we remind you that Ti mangio il cuore will be available on demand on Paramount+ from January 2023.
