When the coronavirus hit Europe in 2020, Laura and Daniel were not ready to spend 24 hours a day together in the same place. After the first days of romantic and culinary idyll, their relationship begins to suffer, with jealousy and bursts of ego undermining what seemed like a perfect love story. With complicity and empathy, Supertempo depicts an experience shared by many.
Daniel and Laura are a bright young couple. They are both progressive, interested in social and political issues, cultivated, sporty and good looking. He is a film director, she is a teacher. They seem to embody an ideal union; yet when the lockdown befalls them, their seemingly flawless life begins to wobble. This scenario – which will certainly seem familiar to many of us – is the starting point of this witty and smart anatomy of a relationship. Our protagonists first re-enact a sort of honeymoon of fried delicacies and lasagne, but soon enough, jealousy, gender issues, work instability and overinflated egos will pop up before our eyes, calling into question the idea of the couple as the main pillar of our society. Daniel Kemény and Laura Donato stage a couple’s crisis which mirrors the one of a country under siege from a pandemic and living in constant political turmoil. With the savvy use of a small apartment as a stage, and featuring a deserted Rome illuminated with pure beauty, Supertempo is a neat snapshot of a shared experience fixed forever in our memories.
