Laura Bispuri Italy, 2018

itwstlnd's rating of the film Daughter of Mine

Bispuri is not Alice Rohrwacher, yet she tries to shoot her own "Le meraviglie". Her depiction of Sardinia fails at including the landscape in the movie: the island and its people are a flat postcard, a mere background for the drama of Tina and Angelica (believe me, I'm from there). Maybe Bispuri is still looking for her own style; I wish her good luck, I'll look forward to her next attempt
