Le meraviglie

by Alice Rohrwacher Gala Premieres

Although just twelve years old, Gelsomina basically calls the shots in her family. To her quiet father, Wolfgang, she is the future queen of a small kingdom he has built up over the years. This patchwork family gets by in the middle of nowhere in Northern Italy on beekeeping. It’s an extraordinary summer, and the strict rules that previously held the family together are now beginning to melt. First, Martin turns up, a peculiar German boy on a reintegration program. Then Gelsomina hears of a TV show that the family just has to apply for… LE MERAVIGLIE casts a sensitive eye over a childhood in the countryside: Both the drawbacks, and, above all, the little wonders that such a life brings. Alice Rohrwacher’s impressive second feature garnered the Grand Prix at Cannes.
