Storyline

Rome, 1984, Aria is nine-year-old girl. On the verge of divorce, Aria's infantile and selfish parents are too preoccupied with their careers and extra-marital affairs to properly tend to any of Aria's needs. While her two older sisters are pampered, Aria is treated with cold indifference. Yet she yearns to love and to be loved. At school, Aria excels academically but is considered a misfit by everyone. She is misunderstood. Aria finds comfort in her cat - Dac and in her best friend - Angelica. Thrown out of both parents' homes, abandoned by all, even her best friend, Aria finally reaches the limit of what she can bear. She makes an unexpected decision in her life. Written by Cannes Film Festival

Misunderstood.
30 December 2015 | by MosquithaSee all my reviews

I saw this film 2 days ago and it is still growing on me. It had the effect of one of those films that you generally like just after viewing, but then you keep thinking about this or that character, or different scenes, and how striking they were, and you just can' t wait to watch it again.

This film portrays very well the difficulty of the transition between childhood and adolescence, and that of growing up in a dysfunctional family, the characters, the situations feel very real and I can relate to many of them, either because of personal experience or friend' s experience.

The characters are memorable, especially the lazy, older half sister with her morbid relationship with her father and her gaudy pink room, the crazy, self obsessed artist mother, and of course the main character, Aria.

I do not want to spend ages analysing this film, I just feel like to give my positive feedback as it really touched me, and I think that if you like good films about teenagers, or coming of age films, you should check this out as it might be for you. On top of all this it is visually very stylish, and has a killer soundtrack.
