DIRECTOR'S NOTES:     FP

Francesco Prisco was born in Frattamaggiore, Campania. His short film Bisesto was nominated for the 2009  David di Donatello Best Short Film award. Francesco’s  first full length film was Nottetempo.

Prisco said of Bob & Marys: "a light-hearted comedy with shades of dark that reveals an activity of the Neapolitan criminal world almost completely unknown. It tells of a weakened love, of unspoken talents and missed opportunities.  It's a film about the abuse of the underworld and the unconscious desire to rebel, to be reborn, to fight."
