Powerhouse acting!
21 February 2018 | by Alexander_BlanchettSee all my reviews

A very emotional and strong mother-daughter drama. One of the best acted films I have seen on the Berlinale so far. Its a moving story of a woman who returns into the life of her former friend and slowly trying to claim back the love of her estranged daughter, who is risen by her friend. The italian film is simply shot but with a great touch for emotionality. Valeria Golino has a great comeback role. Such great emotional strength as the woman who fights for her adopted daughter but still tries not to risk the friendship of the woman who is causing the trouble. Alba Roherwachter plays that woman and delivers a raw and very honest performance. Its hard to dislike her, even with all the mistakes she is doing. The true star however is Sara Casu who blew me away with such a wonderful performance. She really is able to embody every emotion. She is real and you really feel sorry for her every time she is on screen. It feels like she is a part of YOUR family that you have the desire to protect her from all of that. Great direction bx Laura Bisquri. The film is surrounded by a fantastic soundtrack. The screenplay is wonderfully written, without any pathos or melodramatic elements. A truly great family drama and a showcase of great performances.
