a real love story...not to be missed
26 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I came to know Ozpetek's work in his monumental, "Le Fate Ignoranti". His new film is quite different, but doesn't disappoint. Essentially, it is a "love story", of a woman coming to her truest self, her "sacred heart... cuore sacro", in a confrontation with her past, and the memory of her mother; the present, and the death of a young girl whom she befriended; and the future, and the direction her life will take. Ozpetek has produced a startlingly beautiful film about the birth of a "saint", and how one can be led out of a self-enclosed egocentric existence into a life of radical communion with others. It reminds me of another film with the same theme, "Central Station Brazil". BEAUTIFUL... not to be missed!
