Venice Film Festival 2011: 'Terraferma'

13 September 2011 11:17 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

Emanuele Crialese's Terraferma (2011), one of three Italian films up for the Golden Lion (the film walked away with the Special Jury Prize), is a tale of simple folk dealing with difficult issues.

25 Alternative 2011 Tiff Picks: Emanuele Crialese's Terraferma

2 September 2011 8:55 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

#20. Terraferma Director: Emanuele Crialese Cast: Filippo Pucillo, Donatella Finocchiaro, Mimmo Cuticcho, Giuseppe Fiorello, Timnit T. Distributor: Rights Available Buzz: Using a familiar backdrop of his native Sicily (sun-bleached islands plus rhythmic aqua blues) this appears (see trailer) less epic in scope than his 2006 film The Golden Door and less fable like than 2002's Respiro -- but Emanuele Crialese still works with the same obsession: free spirit status of the individual. Perhaps more telling, less romantic and more complex within this format, along with Kaurismäki's Le Havre, this Venice selected title only confirms that immigration migration due to the despairing differences between rich and poor and climate change is more than just a trendy topic. The Gist: Two women, an Island dweller and a foreigner: one dramatically influences the life of the other. But they both share the same desire for a different future, a better life for their children and the dream of the mainland. »
