Along the Ridge
25 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 31 films I saw there this film makes my top six. Actor Kim Rossi Stuart makes an impressive directorial debut with this film. Stuart began his acting career as a child actor and probably from that experience he gets the most from his two young actors in the principal cast who are making their acting debuts on film. Stuart casts himself as Renato who is a single father raising a son, Tommi (Allessandro Morace) and a daughter, Viola (Marta Nobili). This is a macho dominated family unit with all the pressure put on Tommi from his father Renato who wants to live his own childhood through Tommi and dominates and supersedes Tommi's own ambitions. Sister Viola kind of gets a free pass to skate through life from Renato. We soon learn that the children's mother Stefania (Barbora Bobulova) is very much alive as she repentantly returns to ask to be once again accepted into the household. She apparently has a history of extra-marital affairs but again in the macho society of this film there is no contesting child custody or the home to live in on her part. Renato has the ultimate say if she can stay or leave and the home and children are his. Both parents obviously love their children but both have emotional problems. Stefania as the straying mother and housewife and Renato who is a fun and creative guy but his broken marriage eats at him and he flares up at the children but also lovingly plays around with them like a kid himself. His do-it-my-way attitude spills out to his work environment also as a freelance film cameraman and causes further problems for him. The title Along the Ridge comes from the building rooftop where Tommi keeps a secret hiding place precariously perched at the edge of a steep roof high above the street below. Good story from Linda Ferri, Francesco Giammusso, Federic Starnone and Stuart with excellent cinematography from Stefano Falivene. I would give this an 8.5 out of 10 and recommend it.
