Marta, 13, struggles to settle in South Italy after ten years spent in Switzerland. Tormented, she observes the city, paying attention to its sounds and smells but continues to feel like a stranger.

There is something of Rossellini in the way Alice Rohrwacher films the young Marta and in the particular manner she mixes different themes such as moral issues, Marta’s relationship to the world (South Italia) and the age of puberty. This impression is reinforced by the attention, quite rare in today’s cinema, with which she films a territory, human bodies and someone’s point of view. To film the world of adults as a “revelation” and as disappointment, an unkept promise that will need to be made up for.
