Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali and Linda Cardellini are the protagonists of the drama film, directed by Peter Farrelly, “Green Book”, which will be premiered tomorrow on Rai1 at 21.25. New York, 1962: Italian-American bouncer Tony Vallelonga, known as Tony Lip, is forced to look for a job due to the temporary closure of the place where he works. The right opportunity comes when he meets Don Shirley, a famous jazz pianist. The African American musician hires him as a personal driver, in view of the tour that will take him to perform in the southern states, precisely where racism is deeply rooted. On the other hand, Tony himself has many prejudices against blacks.
Interpreted by Marco Giallini, the surly and Trastevere vice-chief Rocco Schiavone, television transposition of the famous protagonist of the literary works of Antonio Manzini (Sellerio Editore), returns to Rai2 with two new first evenings in the name of noir and detective. Uprooted from his beloved capital and transferred, for some time now, to Aosta for disciplinary reasons, Schiavone has never really settled in the adopted city. He continues to bear the harsh climate and the snow that he insists on facing with his inevitable loden and Clarks. Always tormented, but also emotionally redeemed, by the memory of his beloved wife Marina who he imagines and regrets every day since his tragic death. And then those questionable friendships, those vices that are not strictly legal and orthodox, such as his methods of investigation and his cheeky language, to say the least, with no limit to foul language and colorful interspersing. In short, Rocco has not changed and we will find him, in this fourth season, always struggling with his inner demons and with the same stubbornness of a rude and implacable policeman. Together with his men he will be busy shedding light on two particularly complex cases. The first will lead the assistant superintendent into the dark folds of gambling and the second to shed light not only on a case hastily labeled as medical malpractice, but also and above all on a part of himself that he has kept hidden and protected from everyone for too long: that of feelings. Rocco Schiavone is a co-production of Rai Fiction, Cross Productions and Beta Film, directed by Simone Spada, broadcast prime time tomorrow and Wednesday 24 March on Rai2.
