honest work
1 June 2015 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

the great virtue - profound honesty. a honest film who say nothing new but explores the nuances of story with grace and precision. and that detail does the difference. Francesco of Ettore Bassi is credible. Chiara of Maria Petruolo seems be the ideal portrait of Chiara. the landscapes, the language, the details, the atmosphere gives the original sensitivity, admirable tension, deep poetry of Fiori. that poetry, present in many other films about Poverello , becomes in this case refreshing . because it is more than pure poetry. it is a rare form of grace who seduce not only for images or delicacy but for the realism. a honest movie. who could be a beautiful experience for the viewer who rediscovers a world out of myth frame.
