The Wonders/2014/Italy

FiC Rating 4.5/5
Dir: Alice Rohrwacher
Why FiC Recommends?

  1. A deeply personal romanticism of growing up in a beekeeper’s family in the countryside, The Wonders is tremendously comforting yet layered.
  2. Harboring a celebration of the resilience of countryside struggle and a subtle criticism of older generation’s adherence to outdated traditions.
  3. The emotional complications are rendered with transparent honesty within a narrative interwoven by personal suffocation, melancholy and a yearning to break free.
