It’s January! It’s cold(ish)! It’s the perfect season for soup. And just in time, the monthly Doc Soup festivus continues. This month’s Doc Soup ingredient, brought to you by Hot Docs, is the Italian documentary La Bocca del Lupo ( The Mouth of the Wolf ).

Director Pietro Marcello tells the unusual story of two ex-convicts, Vincenzo Motta and Mary Monaco, who fell in love in prison. Mary, a transgendered drug addict, had to wait for Enzo’s release since he was sentenced to 20 years for shooting two policemen. Their reunion story is told against the backdrop of Genoa harbour. The film has won awards at both the Berlin International Film Festival (2010) and the Torino International Festival of Young Cinema (2009). It promises to be an interesting watch.

Bloor Cinema offers two showtimes this Wednesday January 5 at 6:30pm and 9:15pm. You can watch the trailer on the Bloor website.
