L’Immensita (12)

Saturday, September 2

Dir. Emanuele Crialese, Italy, 2022, 99 mins, subtitled. Cast. Penélope Cruz, Vincenzo Amato, Luana Giuliani.

A mesmerising Penélope Cruz proves once again that she is among the finest actors of her generation in this deeply personal coming-of-age drama. A vibrant and sun-drenched 1970s Rome belies the quiet desperation simmering inside Clara (Cruz), a woman trying to keep things upbeat for her children while trapped in an abusive marriage. Her eldest child, Adriana, idolises their fun-loving mother but feels trapped, albeit in the wrong body. While their father and his peers refuse to accept Adriana as Andrew, he is off falling for a girl on ‘the other side of the reeds’. All the while, Crialese movingly employs nostalgic Italian songs and joyous fantasy sequences as a contrast to the harrowing reality of a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

“the force of Cruz’s charisma — she’s like a cross between Sophia Loren and a solar flare” – Wendy Ide, Screen International

Io Capitano is a story of epic scale, but one which doesn’t lose sight of the individual human stakes of the migrant crisis and the intensity of the suffering it propagates.
