Benzina is the tenderly dramatic story of two young girls not much over twenty. Stella and Lenni, a petrol pump, a snobby, super-bourgeois mother hovering threateningly over the girls’ love affair and their desire to escape. At night time an accident, or maybe a crime… the desperate escape, with the cumbersome corpse of the mother to get rid of.
From the novel by Elena Stancanelli.
