Breath of life
- Respiro review by MW
This is an exquisite gem: a delightful, vivid, true-to-life account of the trials, tribulations and small joys of a poor fishing community in Sicily. At its heart is Grazia, a mentally unstable mother of two boisterous boys who get into various scrapes and a nubile daughter who falls for a guileless rookie policeman. Grazia's long-suffering, rugged fisherman husband is the soul of patience and love. When Grazia goes missing the villagers unite in searching for her and the story's end, in the sea, though inconclusive, is quite magical. This is a beautiful, uplifting film made with a sensitive director's eye and ear. All in all, a joy.
