Comme dans Les Poings dans les Poches, retour à une famille de barges. Un frère qui veut se débarrasser de sa sœur, la Nef des Fous. Bigots, hypocrites, incestueux! Quels acteurs prodigieux! Et quel film perturbé! ==== As in Fists in the Pockets, back to a family of nutters. A brother wants to get rid of his sister, a Nave of Fools, bigots, hypocrites, incestuous! Prodigious actors. And a very disturbed film.
Acted with fragile finesse by a powerful duo, Bellochio's stunning indictment against the pillars of society (family, church, justice) puts to judicious use Lanci's atmospherically prowling camerawork, Piovani's oneiric melodies and his own surreal fusion of dream and reality around a tormented (and psychologically ready to devour 'normality') childhood. A bleak film that puts the current Lanthimos craze to shame.
