How do we really face madness?
29 July 1999 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

How do we really face madness? And what do we do when madness touches us? This is the main dilemma of Martine, the principal character of the movie. After a sentimental crisis and a nervous breakdown, she discovers a new life and spirit in an institute of mental illnesses... I really liked this movie, and I think that the reason is quite simple: the director, Laurence Ferreira Barbosa, fully succeeded in depicting folly without any sociological schematism and with uncommon freedom. But I can't forget to mention the astonishing performance by Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, whose destiny (I hope) is definitely bright. Finally, just an advice: go and see it if you like Cesaria Evora. This fantastic singer gives us two unforgettable moments of authentic joy with her brilliant voice.
