The trailer for Tear along the edges, the animated series of Zerocalcare
The trailer images are accompanied by Torn along the edges, the title track of the series written by the Roman singer-songwriter Giancane, with whom Zerocalcare created a partnership in 2018, during the making of the video of the song Ipocondria (feat. Rancore), a song that made up the soundtrack of the Rebibbia Quarantine animated shorts, produced in 2020.
In addition to the theme song, Giancane also peeps out in a dozen other moments of the series, in which his original compositions embellish both the comedy parts and the more intense ones.
Zerocalcare commented on the choice of songs featured in this first animated project of his: “I may have chosen a soundtrack that is a bit boomer, but these are songs that have accompanied me throughout my life. The Movimenti animation team really built entire scenes around the songs I had chosen, to build a fluid and interdependent narrative made of music and images. I like the result a bang ”.
Below you can find the trailer for Rip Along Edges:
And below you can find the official synopsis:
In a story full of flashbacks and anecdotes ranging from his childhood to the present day, Zerocalcare takes a train journey with Sarah and Secco, old friends, towards something very difficult to do. Everything, from the memories of the school years to the existential lamentations towards his own incompleteness, is narrated with the voice of Zerocalcare, who dubbed all the characters, except the armadillo, who has the voice of Valerio Mastandrea. It is with this stratagem that each chapter of history seems to construct a piece of a world made up of very few certainties and unshakable friendships. And when all the pieces are in place in the finale, the mosaic they have built will be a surprise for the spectator, but also for the protagonist.
