Grazia lives with her father in a dilapidated coastal town around southern Italy, where she has to help out at his fish shop. She has no real prospects in life, but beneath her inscrutable expression she harbours a deep longing for her missing brother, Pietro.

Our take

As long-time fans of Alice Rohrwacher’s Corpo Celeste, we made sure not to miss this debut from Italian director Fabio Mollo. Similarly drawn to exploring early teenagehood and the boundaries of life in the province, South is Nothing imbues a family drama with tinges of magical realism.
