Van is an oil well maintainer who lives and works at one of the largest fields in Texas. Danilo is the machine manager on a transoceanic cargo ship and every day he works on the gigantic engine, located in the heart of the hull. Andrea is an Italian scientist, luminary in the field of acoustic physics, who has spent his whole life studying in books. Vito has spent half his life managing slot machines in Switzerland and is now responsible for a huge waste incinerator. These men are unknowingly at the base of the sequence of creation, transport, marketing and destruction of the objects that feed the bulimia of our lifestyle. Vittoria and Andrea are a forty-year-old couple who spent their lives accumulating objects to a point of saturation. They grew up with the boom in commercial television and the development of the Internet age. Vittoria and Andrea are like many of us.

"Beautiful Things is a truly spectacular documentary with the structure of an escape". (Glen Kenny, NY Times)

"Giorgio Ferrero has a special talent for representing history as a kind of synaesthesia, creating images with music instead of using music to reinforce images". Stephanie Zacherek (Time Magazine)

"A galvanizing soundtrack. Like all good symphonic composers, Ferrero knows the power of silence; the soundtrack becomes a space between silences, cleaning the world of disorder". David Bordwell (Critic, Professor Emeritus of Film Studies)

"The beauty of impermanence. An exciting and revealing aesthetic experience". (Sunday - Il Sole 24 Ore)

"Beautiful Things is a film-symphony, a" palimpsest "of both the twentieth century and the contemporary in a globalizing observation". (Bruno Roberti - Il Manifesto)

"Beautiful Things is a stunning visual symphony on objects and on the process of dis-humanization of the man of grandiose visionary power. Among the most beautiful films of this edition. A miracle, perhaps. Fortunately, they still happen". (
