J’ador is selected at the 35. Venice International Film Critic’s Week Settimana Internazionale della Critica
by Simone Bozzelli
Rome. Claudio is 15 years-old. Someone is writing “J’ador” on his forehead because he smells like a little girl. It’s Lauro, eighteen-year-old, leader of a group made of guys claiming to be fascists and doing a lot of things for a far-right party. Claudio wants to go with them to the “dinner”, but only those who belong to the group can join it, and not the little girls like him.
If he truly wants to achieve his goal, one afternoon Claudio must lose its boy scent and learn how to smell like a man.
