106. A short fiction film from Giulio D'Ercole to remember the Holocaust.

Updated: Mar 22, 2020

By Giulio D'Ercole -

In addition to the previous post, today, January 23rd, in order to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I would like to share with you not the usual photo of Rome, but a short fiction film I wrote and co-produced back in 2002: "The Treatment", the original Italian title being "La Cura". I wrote this film, during a short stay in Milan, when I had a dentist who used to talk and talk and talk while working on my teeth. Sometimes he would even ask me questions I obviously could not answer. It was one of the most awkward situations I ever experienced. So I thought, how could I work on it and transform this "setting" in something "universal", something everybody could relate to? Well, I realized that the whole plot had to play around a simple fact: one guy is in total power while the other one cannot move at all. But what is really behind this psychological, and physical torture? "The Treatment", is what I came up with. If you want to watch it, click on the link below.
