Nocturn de Sant Felip Neri

Nocturn de Sant Felip Neri


Clara Bertran, a blind girl from an old family of Barcelona's aristocracy, commissions Carles, a writer who lives off literature, to write a book, as curious as it is intriguing, about a street musician.

Within the walls of a medieval mansion in Sant Felip Neri square, the lives of Clara and Carles, together with that of Franz, the beggar violinist from Sarajevo of whom Clara wants to know the story, will be bound in a text that is a rabid cry of struggle in the face of the terrible difficulties that some people simply have to overcome in order to continue living.

Nocturn de Sant Felip Neri is both a critical and lucid portrait of the city of Barcelona today and its history, a poignant chronicle of the tragedy of the Balkans and an absolute condemnation of any kind of war, past or future.
