Cineforum Italiano: Cuore sacro (Sacred Heart)

You're invited to our last film of 2010! Before the film we'll have Italian film trivia with door prizes for the winning answers and after the film we'll have a small reception. Ferzan Özpetek directed the film we're screening. The film received 12 nominations at the David di Donatello awards, where Barbora Bobulova won the Best Actress award.
Titolo originale: Cuore sacro
Regia: Ferzan Ozpetek
Anno: 2005
Durata: 116 minuti
Genere: drammatico
Lingua: In Italian with English subtitles
Synopsis: This is the story of a workaholic businesswomen Irene who experiences the loss of two of her friends by suicide. This loss, combined with her desire to sell off a piece of property that includes the living quarters of her eccentric mother, ends up sending her on a journey of emotional and spiritual transformation.
Sinossi: Irene Ravelli ha ereditato dal padre non solo il patrimonio, ma anche uno spiccato senso degli affari. Ottenuto il dissequestro dell'antico Palazzetto di famiglia, Irene scopre che una delle stanze, abitate un tempo dalla madre, è rimasta intatta come se la donna ci abitasse ancora. Il fantasma della madre e l'incontro con una straordinaria bambina, Benny, generano in Irene un conflitto che la porta ad un totale cambiamento.

    I'm not a big fan of the subject for a film but I love the director. La lingua nel film era bellissima... facile da capire. The star of the film was AMAZING!... bella recitazione e cinematografia.

    Super excited to see this film since it is by the same director as last month's film and I thought that last month's film was excellent!
