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.
