Storyline

After many years of medical treatment Valentina, apparently an epileptic girl, has been sent to a psychiatric clinic. Here she finds Arturo, a young psychiatrist, who notwithstanding his problematic personal life and the Italian Public Health Service's overwhelming inefficiencies, is able to establish with Valentina an intense relationship. Focusing the therapy more on her family life than on drugs they will finally discover the true nature of her disease. Written by Marco Malaspina <mala@tesre.bo.cnr.it>

A delightful piece of Italian cinema
11 September 1999 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another example of why European cinema throws up so many more interesting films than our American counterparts. And why is this?

Because they usually deal with humanity rather than machinery.

Il Grande Cocomero delivers characters you can identify with, multi-dimensional people, foibles and all, that are totally recognisable and there's not one special effect in sight.

This film puts humanity first, and is so much the richer for that. A little gem.
