aka Miele
First screened in October 2013
Director: Valeria Golino. Cast: Jasmine Trinca, Carlo Cecchi, Vinicio Marchioni, Libero De Rienzo, Massimiliano Iacolucci, Iaia Forte, Claudio Guain, Roberto De Francesco, Barbara Ronchi. Screenplay: Francesca Marciano, Valia Santella, and Valeria Golino (loosely based on the novel A nome tuo by Maura Covacich).

Twitter Capsule: Golino shows mettle with actors, solid technique in her helming debut. May not reach for the stars, but empathetic, engaging.

VOR:   As well as Golino, Trinca acquit themselves, it's the kind of film you admire very much at a festival, then forget about when you're listing what you saw.
