viff | corpo celeste

Looks more like Church Bash than Soul Food, but you never know....

Italy/Switzerland/France | Dir: Alice Rohrwacher | View Trailer

Gritty, authentic, graced by superb naturalistic performances and often truly funny, Alice Rohrwacher's debut dramatic comedy focusses on 13-year-old Marta as she copes with her new life in Calabria after a decade in Switzerland. Catholic traditions are strong in her new village, but as Marta prepares to be confirmed, her growing sense of self causes her to question everything.
