Western Sicilian said the director, of course, but a metaphor for two opposite worlds.
11 March 2020 | by vjdino-37683See all my reviews

Western Sicilian said the director, of course, but a metaphor for two opposite worlds: a rough and primitive one (with Marquis echoes), cynically capable of betting on who will give up first. And the other emancipated, played by the director herself, capable of moving away from her origins, with a regurgitation of malice towards the stubbornness of a grandmother, of Albanian origin, who is the banner of the neighborhood, played by a splendid eighty-two-year-old actress, Elena Cotta, who therefore received the Volpi cup at the 70th Venice festival. Whoever criticizes the incomprehensible use of dialectal expressions does not know the director's theatrical history, who has always made it his fundamental stylistic note. Among other things, the film is subtitled! You can choose to see it to appreciate its realization courage, in the context of an Italian cinematography increasingly flattened by repetitive commercial choices!
