Strong Italian Women's Film.
30 September 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This one is a ticks all the women's picture boxes, where the fellers are set decoration and the preoccupations are female.

The subject is unfamiliar - Buy's premature baby, in an incubator, comes to dominate her life, though her surroundings intrude - the adult education class she teaches, the society of the ward's mothers, a woman magistrate moved into her block with her sub-machine gun carrying scorta, the power supply, rampaging ants.

Dominated by a commanding performance by star Buy, she generates a plausibly anguished central character and allows herself to look ravaged in close up, though she seems to be in great shape - unless that's a very convincing body double.

Not the easiest film to follow, with it's broken time structure and fantasy interludes, this one is adult and challenging. Interesting use of popular music. Wide screen film making is superior.
