"La Valigia" is an Italian film focusing on the recollection of an old man's life and how he is able to travel back to different times due to the various artifacts he has kept stored in an old suitcase. The old man, locked up in an anonymous room with just a barred window and a bed, ponders how long he has been stuck in what is basically a cell, recalling past loves, friends and experiences. He repeatedly transforms into younger forms of himself, reliving events of the past. Each transformation touches on different aspects of his life and how he has changed as he's grown older. The animation work is done very well and the different versions of the old man are all very unique and good looking. The music underlines the film's darker tones, as the piece touches upon memory loss and its effects on a family. The script is exceptional and touches upon some very tough topics. "La Valigia" is an official selection of the New York City Independent Film Festival and while be shown during the festival's run from October 12-18, 2015.
