A Ciambra

118 min. – Drama

Languages: Italian (English subtitles)

Italy’s official submission to the Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, this keenly observed drama from Jonas Carpignano revisits characters from his Mediterranea. At its center is Pio Amato, a 14-year-old boy living on the poor side of a Calabrian town (“A Ciambra”), where frictions between Italians, gypsies and African immigrants run high, and petty crime is a way of life. Carpignano elicits terrific performances from the predominantly nonprofessional cast, aided by Tim Curtin’s fluid cinematography. “A coming-of-age drama with a stealthy emotional charge that further enhances the writer-director’s reputation as a gifted practitioner of Italian neo-neorealism.” – David Rooney (THR)
