Cinema Italian Style

A dark but playful fable about love and loss, and a young girl’s struggle to wrestle her mother’s attentions from her pet dog onto herself.

The young girl, an insomniac. The mother, an artist. The dog, named Marcel. The little girl loves her mother immensely, but her mother loves Marcel more than anything else. Will an unpredictable event allow those circles of love to reconnect? Italian actress Jasmine Trinca’s feature debut carefully and lovingly blends different tropes into a distinctive and often engaging part-real, part-fantasy world; a delicate, well-observed homage to mime, to silent film, and to Rome in summertime.
