Not all roads lead to Rome

Gianfranco Rosi's film about life along the six lane highway, Grande Raccordo Anulare, that encircles Rome, is the first documentary to win the Golden Lion in Venice. Through meetings with eccentric people in places not normally thought of as destinations, but merely points of passage, Rosi tells the story about life on the outskirts of the Italian capital. The stories of an old fisherman, a botanist, a self-styled prince, an ambulance paramedic and a former nobleman and his daughter are woven together and make an impressionistic mosaic of life along the GRA.
