Monica Bellucci and Valerio Mastandrea play two of the lead characters in Paolo Virzì’s Siccità, which just began shooting in Rome.

The new film by the Livorno-born director imagines a version of Rome where it hasn’t rained for three years, resulting in a water shortage which upends rules and habits. Circulating within this city overcome by thirst yet drowning in prohibitions is a group of characters who are both young and old, marginalised and successful, victims and profiteers. Their lives are interlinked in one tragic and mocking design as each of them searches for personal redemption.

Siccità’s film treatment was written by Paolo Giordano and Paolo Virzì, while the script was penned by Francesca Archibugi, Francesco Piccolo, Paolo Giordano and Paolo Virzì.
