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

Excellent film - all around. Highly recommended.
30 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Good films are not easy to find, really good films even less so. Incompresa is one of the rare finds.

The story is 'simple', it's about a nine year old girl growing up in the 80ies inside an 'artistic' family, whose artsy parents are so pre-occupied with themselves they don't care about their youngest daughter at all. She barely survives, a miracle that she makes it. All that is shown in an unsentimental way, the audience never gets lured into fake emotions.

Asia Argento, the director, is somebody well worth watching and following. And, btw, she is not, like somebody wrote here, related to Leni Riefenstahl. I don't know where this is coming from.
