|A scene from|
L'amore Imperfetto (2002)
|In Rome with Enrico Lo Verso|
Lo Verso's most recent role was in Edoardo Ponti's award-winning short film, The Nightshift Belongs to the Stars. The story follows a man and woman who strike up a friendship the night before they are both scheduled for open heart surgeries. They discover their mutual passion for mountain climbing and vow to meet in the Italian Dolomites if they both survive their respective surgeries. Lo Verso plays the role of Matteo, a man who receives the heart of a woman. The role was both physically and emotionally demanding for the actor as the subject matter deals with the important issue of organ donation and the storyline literally had him hiking through the mountains. The film made its North American premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and went on to win the top prize in its category.
These days, Enrico Lo Verso is preparing to embark on a new personal and professional adventure, relocating to Germany where he will study the language and star in a German theatre production. Due to the international success of Lo Verso's projects, all the above films are available stateside, in particular through Amazon and FilmStruck.
