Una Primavera

Biografilm Italia

(Austria, Italy / 2018 / 80’)

When Fiorella decides to leave Bruno, after forty years of abuse, her daughter Valentina cannot remain on the sidelines. That's why she takes her camera and points it at her parents. The director leads us into her house, to the sites of screams, where she tells of a woman stuck in a bad marriage, crushed by a violent man and paralysed by a provincial mindset that still defends a chauvinist ideology behind the alibi of the sacredness of the family. An incredibly touching first work that takes nothing for granted and traps us inside the walls of a painful yet significant story. A testimony that reveals the director's love for his mother and her burning desire to see her free.
