This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
A coming-of-age story about a teenage girl who unravels the mystery of what happened to her older brother. Grazia is a complex, enigmatic character who struggles with her father's silence and her own grief surrounding the loss of her brother. I expect great things from Fabio Mollo in the future. He is one to watch. My review here: http://ekphora.blogspot.com/2016/07/ghosts-and-silence-in-il-sud-e-niente.html
