Synopsis
SOMOS MARI PEPA (We Are Mari Pepa) tells the story of Alex, a 16-year-old teenager living with his grandma, who has various plans to occupy himself during the summer: write a new song with his rock band “Mari Pepa“, find a job and have his first sexual experience. He also becomes aware that his grandma is increasingly dependent on him. As the summer continues, Alex realizes that things are going to change forever and that he will have to grow up and learn to say goodbye. The director Samuel Kishi Leopo portrays his characters and their dreams and fears in such an authentic and understandable way that he easily invokes memories of lazy hot summer days, the first kiss, and the precious time shared with friends. He splendidly manages the balancing act between a modern coming-of-age comedy and an honest, sensitive portrait of a teenage boy growing up.
