Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Mia madre

A film of great sensitivity and understanding of the nuances that amount to suffering. Moretti likes to overstate the intention of the mundane, which builds, little by little, to an unfathomable sense of cleansing. Mia Madre is not the Italian filmmaker’s best film but it is one of his most introspective.
