“SECONDO ME” follows three cloakroom attendants at three European opera houses: Vienna State Opera, La Scala in Milan and Odessa Opera House. The film reverses the natural order of things, relegating the opera houses and operatic performances to the background, and bringing the ancillary staff to the fore. “SECONDO ME” is about the drama that can be found in the day-to-day lives of ordinary people, in their beliefs, emotions and concerns, and in their approach to the passage of time.
