The Wonders


(Le meraviglie) Director: Alice Rohrwacher, I - CH - D, 2014, Italian, German version / Czech subtitles, 101 min

Gelsomina lives with her parents and three younger sisters on a remote farm somewhere in Umbria. Her father keeps the family far from the wiles of the modern world, subscribing to a return to nature as the only safe path. A vegetable patch and, primarily, beekeeping for honey as a source of income keep the adults and children a close-knit group – that is until their strong bonds begin to erode with the arrival of Martin, a juvenile delinquent they take on as part of a reeducation program. He represents interference from the outside, as does the shooting of the TV show contest “Countryside Wonders,” which has the whole region all abuzz. The idealistic and rather despotic father’s confidence is shaken by the realization that his beloved eldest daughter may take a different path than the one he has chosen for himself and those closest to him. Alice Rohrwacher, like her sister Alba who plays the mother, grew up not far from the locations of her “family story.” The picture enchanted Cannes audiences and the international jury, which honored The Wonders with the Grand Prix, the award second only to the Palme d’Or.
