EXCLUSIVE: Deadline has your first look trailer at Cannes competition title Nostalgia, directed by Italian helmer Mario Martone.

The story follows Felice Lasco, played by Pierfrancesco Favino, who returns to Naples after living for many years in Egypt to visit his elderly mother whom he had left suddenly when he was still a boy. It’s his first time back since he left the bustling port city for Egypt some 40 years ago. When it becomes clear that Naples represents for him a life that is now lost and that he should return home as soon as possible to where he came from, he is pinned down by the invincible force of nostalgia.
