Italy, 1984 (MIFF 1991, Pupi Avati)
Director: Pupi Avati
The brief sojourn of 14 year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Bologna, to sit for a musical composition exam, is the starting-point for Avati's high-spirited, whimsical, 18th C. "teen-pic". Set against the actual backdrop of the filmmaker's own adolescence, We Three breezily conjures both the fleeting joys of growing up and the mysterious beauty of Avati's beloved home region.
Director's Note: "I believe that later in Mozart's symphonies, in the adagios and the clarinet pieces, there remains something of this short visit" - Pupi Avati
