The Optimist


Abstract
In this script, Ludwig, a young romantic, a gardener to a family in the Belair estates, in love with their daughter is kicked out ? he enters a world of absurd violence and conspiracies but never, almost never, loses his belief that all that is, is best in the world. The story was a contemporary Candide, where all is wrong to an absurd proportion but seen through the lens of an absolute innocence. Roberto Bennini (Down by Law) agreed to do the lead, but the picture never made it to the screen.
