Film THE WONDERS 2015-07-07 19:00:00


Director: Alice Rohrwacher;  Italy, 2014, 110 min; Italian with subtitles

Italian director Alice Rohrwacher's gripping coming-of-age drama set amidst the bees and beauty of the Tuscan countryside one hot summer. In an old ramshackle house, Gelsomina (Maria Alexandra Lungu) lives with her three sisters, her father Wolfgang (Sam Louwyck) and family friend Coco (Sabine Timoteo). The house is part refuge from a world her father perceives as corrupt and failing, whilst also being a self-sufficient, working farm and a magical kingdom for the children.

The family keeps bees and makes delicious honey, eschewing pesticides and commercialism. Gelsomina becomes obsessed with a competition run by a local television programme - 'Wonders of the Countryside' - a cash prize and cruise up for grabs to those who most enshrine traditional values. Wolfgang is a dictator and a bully, but his shouting and gruffness are largely ignored by the family, who've got used to him. --CineVue

Alice Rohrwacher, the 31-year-old Italian filmmaker, has a mesmerising coming-of-age tale: small and sweet in every good way, but alive with a power that seems to surge up from deep beneath its sun-roughened landscape. The film is heavily inspired by the director’s own childhood in the countryside between Umbria and Tuscany. The film comes and goes without commotion, but its magic settles on you as softly and as steadily as dust.  –The Telegraph
