The title ” For The Time Being “ is a metaphor for the underlying message of this story.
According to the film’s director and writer, Daniela Lucati, she wanted to talk about the present, about the choices that the main character Roman, makes for the very present and not for an unconscious closest future. She was mostly interested in exploring this aspect of time.
“As human beings we are almost always oriented towards making choices for the future and often we are either trapped in this hypothetical future, perhaps scared of it, or the opposite, trapped in the past, as if we were slaves or victim of past choices.”
The story starts when Roman deals with alcohol and economical problems, but the arrival of Mel into his life, will make him wonder about who he his and what he would like to change in it.
Roman’s character is reflecting for the first time about his present: who he is in the precise hours during which he is wondering this question. According to Lucati, it is a very special moment because it is the moment where he rediscovers himself, he doesn’t know for how long, but for sure for the time being.
