Early Bird: Festival at Five

A sensitive film about the meaning of motherhood and maternal love. Set in the sun-swept countryside of Sardinia, the emotion-charged story harks back to great Italian melodramas.

The 10-year-old Vittoria learns she has two mothers: Tina, who has lovingly and warmly taken care of her all her life, and Angelica, her biological mother, who leads a somewhat secluded life on a farm with her animals. When Vittoria, in exploring the answers to the questions she’s been harbouring all her life, is brought closer to her, Tina starts feeling threatened by the budding relationship between the biological mother and daughter, as Vittoria is completely fascinated by Angelica’s vivacity and seeming fearlessness.

“Looking at the character of the mother immediately reveals its existence in an archetypal duality of the `good´ and the `bad´ mother. Think of the Bible and the story of King Solomon, and his verdict on who of the two women is the child’s `real´ mother. Greek tragedies are telling a similar story. So the way I am trying to explore the `woman’s condition´ is to take as a starting point the stories of our ancestors. /…/ I compare them with questions and realities of today’s women /…/. Then, the traditional idea of a family starts showing its cracks.” (Laura Bispuri)
