Mugge, his fellow producer Diana Zelman, and their dedicated crew filmed these interviews and performances not only in New Orleans, but also in Memphis, Lafayette, Houston, and Austin a mere two months after the storm. It was a time when most citizens of New Orleans were living elsewhere, and when few of the city’s musicians had even tried to reclaim what was left of their damaged homes and music clubs. It was also a time when few stores, hotels, or restaurants were open for business, and when no one knew if the city as a whole could ever again support those who had left it.
But with barely containable hormones constantly bubbling to the surface, complications inevitably arise between the best of friends, eventually creating a circumstance none could predict. ONE KISS is an always vibrant landmark in Italian cinema, an unmissable story of outsider friendship, the limits of imagination, and the consequence of honesty.
