Realist Neapolitan drama.
25 September 2017 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

This one comes as a surprise. Mature director Leonardo di Costanzo has a career in documentaries and that's his approach to a subject that might have made a main stream dramatic feature.

Valentina Vannino, the Wife of an arrested Camorra murder suspect, is given shelter in the hut on the suburban waste land that organiser Raffaella Giordano uses for a kids playground where she is getting a Festa ready, one of the few activities which brighten the drab Neapolitan working class area. The parents and school authorities object to Vannino who they associate with a brutal murder that has left one of the children mute. Giordano protests that her project is "per tutti bambini" but there is an incident in which intruder Vannino responds in character and the whole project is jeapodised.

Full of telling realistic detail - the bike repair shop guy who knows how to involve the withdrawn child, the visits of the Camorra wives, Vannino's second thoughts about make up, the human hand that the kids spit at.
