Based on the novel by Sandro Veronesi, this is the tale of the life of Marco Carrera (Pierfrancesco Favino), known as Colibrì, “the hummingbird”: a life of fateful coincidences, loss and stories of undying love. The plot moves forward on the strength of recollections that allow us to leap from one period to another, in a fluid time ranging from the early 1970s to a near future. It is at sea that Marco meets Luisa Lattes, a beautiful, unusual young woman – a lifelong love never to be extinguished. Il Colibrì is the story of the ancestral force of life, of the arduous struggle we all make to withstand what at times appears intolerable – also by wielding the powerful weapons of illusion, happiness and good cheer.
