North from Calabria is about a dream place to live, where living is easy and people know each other, tolerate their faults, like to meet to talk and just be together. For one summer, Sauter’s film crew mingles with the inhabitants of a small town to enact an almost Italian comedy. It appears that all they needed was a few classes of Italian cuisine and the art of carpe diem to turn this Polish province into Calabria alike. A documentary midsummer night’s dream.
