The Special Need

the special need 1

Directed by Carlo Zarotti / Germany, Italy 2013 / 84 min

Enea is 27, a young man with ordinary needs. What’s unusual is his direct way of expressing them. He carries his desire for a woman like a banner. Enea is autistic and often unable to interpret the reactions of the girls he approaches in the street. And he has yet to learn that it won’t exactly be the dream girl from the magazine who will say yes. Since he never had sex in his life, his friends Alex and Carlo, the director of the film, want to help him. Together they embark in an old VW bus on a journey from Italy through Austria to Germany. Because there is a place there where people like Enea with a “special need” can literally feel their way towards sexuality. Sex in our society is usually charged with high expectations. Many people have trouble separating fantasy from reality, sexuality from love. Consequently, the film does not treat Enea as a special case. It follows its protagonist with great empathy on this all-male summer trip which is to become a journey of discovery into the world of feelings for all three. The camerawork makes this road movie seem very natural, while an instinct for tragicomic scenes adds a light touch.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
