Storyline

The aging, conservative population of a small, sleepy village in the Italian Alps are surprised to see that a former French professor has settled there with his young wife and their three children to produce goat cheese, in order to escape the wrongs of civilization. At first they are suspicious of his unconventional ideas and lifestyle, then are conquered by the enthusiasm, kindness, helpfulness of the young family and start to see in them a possible rebirth of the place. But little by little misunderstandings, envy and conflicts take over. Written by Luisa Bertolini <luisab99@hotmail.com>

A great amateur film
23 January 2012 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

If you expect a Hollywood movie or professional acting, this film is not for you. But if you leave behind all your expectations about this beautiful film by an unknown Italian director played almost entirely (except for the leading role) by non-professional actors, you will enjoy it until the very last second. This film is special also because it portraits the life of a people, that of an Occitan-speaking village in the Italian Alps, which rarely finds its place in modern mass media. Tradition is for these people what holds them together. Diritti challenges their - and our - definition of tradition, by showing that the locals fail to understand that the stranger, who practices the same way of life that was once widespread in those mountains, has something to teach them about their own identity. Brilliant.
