La ragazza del mondo

The Worldly Girl

Giulia's world is an ancient one, suspended in time and built on rigour and sacred texts, which fiercely excludes anyone who doesn't belong to it. Libero's world is that which is inhabited by everyone else: by those who make mistakes, those who make do as they seek other prospects, and those who love unconditionally. 

When Giulia (played by Sara Serraiocco, Salvo LIFF13, Chlorine LIFF15), meets Libero (played by Michele Riondino, Wondrous Bocaccio LIFF15), she discovers there may be another destiny awaiting her, one she can choose for herself. Theirs is a pure and inevitable love story, as the two young people embark on an intense period in their lives together, a choice that leads to Giulia being completely cut off from the religious world she belongs to.

This deeply moving film from Marco Danieli is a tender portrayal of young love at the crossroads. Selected to premiere at the Venice Film Festival this September, it will screen in LIFF only days later.
