Our take

Between Corpo Celeste & Happy as Lazzaro, writer-director Alice Rohrwacher won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival for this, her sophomore feature. An intelligent, impeccable family drama that parallels adolescence and the tension between tradition and modernity—featuring Monica Bellucci!
