Yet another expression of modern France as a dry sadly link crime , hypocrisy and xenophobia controversial , Petit Pays ( Piccola Patria ) is not directly able to offer really powerful guarantee early but must obtain credit score for its concentrate spraying and community research director faith shine . This is a first imaginary look very carefully call for documentary informed Alessandro Rossetto and , after being released in Venice last drop has been silently progressing around the routine of the event.
An antenna out amazing reviews ” the motherland,” the title of a seemingly innocuous place instead of Veneto in the far north – east Italy . To the complement of a euphonic rousingly choral Bepi Di Marzi , wide screen video slide Daniel Mazza little more, a landscape of agricultural part industrial part covered with black glass monolith station 1980s style complicated . After a few glimpses elliptical exerciser in the daily lives of many regional people, two main protagonists come easily : best buddies Luisa (Maria Roveran ) and Renata ( Roberta Da Soller ) , a pair of silver -heart who want to leave Chinese suppliers.
Eking small income with the work of regular sex , the duo hit upon a plan of blackmail get – rich-quick focusing on a relatively insolvent comparison , whatever the outcome in the foreseeable problems . Luisa , meanwhile , the threats of the wrath of her foreign – hating father Franco ( Mirko Artuso ) through a connection with the always smiling, scooter – riding Bilal ( Vladimir Doda ) , a participant of many widely despised in the region financial Albanian migrants. Ladies hit on a plan to blackmail as fast indicates dodge, but their machinations generate unexpected problems.
Thin tale comes against a slightly sketched regional separatism qualification – a conference series represents a community contact team for the freedom of the place Veneto ( not as subtitles in English recommend wrong, Venice ) . But Rossetto , deal with two co- authors apparently did not encounter the type of dramatic and the ability to fully integrate its various plots and subplots , and after a while the mixture Challenge opacity tale and a propensity to lengths complacent than the periodic successful understanding and / or transcendence .
Final , which makes the impact that this external content curiously complex could have been well analyzed in the documented type Rossetto was once known – tensions continuous steam to the inevitable dramatic – or rather melodramatic . The picture seems to take up landscape somewhere between the stylistic bravado Paolo Sorrentino and understanding of the community champion Venice Sacro GRA Gianfranco Rosi – last modified , as Petit Pays , by Jacopo Quadri. But the contact Rossetto is a bit too heavy , both in regard to its implementation of smart graphics shallow reflection and periodic over-reliance on Segat Paolo Alessandro Cellai and fame ranking Roveran , even if the signs punctuation choirs sporadic current test performed by Marzi, welcome bid , thanks efficiently exciting tickets.
