‘Flower’ directed by Che’ Walker, is a short film about the average day in the life of a young Asian-American prostitute who changed her name from Su to ‘Flower’. One client at a time, we see her struggling through the roughness and trials and tribulations of her dark world. The character of Bobby, is played by the supremely talented Mattia Bartoli and who is perhaps, the more gentler of her clients. Although young and new into the world of prostitution he genuinely really cares about Flower and is using her for the sole purpose of a listener, as he breaks down in tears under the pressure of his daily frustrations. Bobby’s naivety will be crushed when he finally comes to realize the total absence of feelings involved in the encounter. There is also a rude awakening for him when he realizes the fact that he was being played by a younger “tough” girl.
Mattia Bartoli has been in showbiz since a very young age, beginning some of his early performances on stage in his native Italy then later on, in London. He has starred in such productions as: “Una Canzone Rer Te”, directed by Herbert Simone Paragnani; and ‘Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial’, directed by Robert Dornhelm starring Hayden Panettiere. He also played a role in the TV series ‘Che Dio Ci Aiuti’, directed by Francesco Vicario.
Since his touchdown in Los Angeles a few years ago, Mattia has been consistently involved in several successful productions. Audiences worldwide are receiving his work with open arms and praise the way Mattia portrays every character he takes on with ease. We cannot wait to see what this amazing talent from Italy takes on next! 2017 promises to be a year full of booked roles for this busy guy!
