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>

Unforgettable and moving
18 June 2002 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Munich over a year ago, by mistake. I was pleasantly surprised though. At that time, I found it touching but also slightly boring. I gave it a 6 out of 10. Today, I still can't forget this film, even though I see approximately one new movie per day. I just can't forget the young epileptic girl's face. Today I'm thinking of rating it a 8.
