Corpo celeste

Cecchi Gori

"Heavenly Body" is playing at the Italian Film Festival 2012. After living with her family in Switzerland for the past ten years, thirteen-year old Marta returns to her hometown of Reggio Calabria in southern Italy. Marta immediately beings a preparation course for her confirmation which, according to all, is a good way to make new friends. She meets Father Mario, a busy priest who runs his parish like a small business, and Santa, a woman who prepares the teenagers for their confirmation. The parish is preparing a feast in honor of the arrival of a new crucifix that will replace the modern crucifix that few like. While waiting for the impending feast, Marta participates in the catechism activities, but she will soon understand that she must find her way in life elsewhere. Marta ha 13 anni ed e' tornata a vivere alla periferia di Reggio Calabria (dove e' nata) dopo aver trascorso 10 anni in Svizzera. Con lei ci sono la madre e la sorella maggiore che la sopporta a fatica. La ragazzina ha l'etagrave; giusta per accedere al sacramento della Cresima e inizia a frequentare il catechismo. Si ritrova cosigrave; in una realta' ecclesiale contaminata dai modelli consumistici, attraversata da un'ignoranza pervasiva e guidata da un parroco piu' interessato alla politica e a fare carriera che alla fede. http://trovacinema.repubblica.it/film/trailer/corpo-celeste/402784 http://www.sfgate.com/movies/article/Corpo-Celeste-review-Compelling-spiritual-story-3671109.php
