Our take

Tender yet gritty, Jonas Carpignano’s coming-of-age tale spirals like a thriller, as family secrets shatter the cocoon of childhood innocence. Sensitive to the inner life of a teenage girl, the last entry in the director’s Calabrian trilogy confronts the intergenerational cost of crime and violence.
