Type: dramatic ✦✦✦
Direction: Alice Rohrwacher. With Josh O’Connor, Isabella Rossellini, Alba Rohrwacher, Carol Duarte
In 1980s Etruria, the theater of the author’s childhood, «after centuries of respect for the dead», the grave robbers dominate. Arthur, a ragged British scholar, has a sixth sense for the voids that the earth hides and the treasures it hides.
With a gang of local wretches stripped and profane, he regrets his lost love and is divided between the miserable refuge she has built for herself and the female community whose crazy matriarch is Isabella Rossellini.
In the world of Alice Rohrwacher, where formats alternate and the romantic hero strides like Ridolini, the past and the present continue to confront each other. And the invisible materializes. Following the red thread that leads from the depths towards the light.
