LITTLE GIRL (LA PIVELLINA), Drama, NR, 100 min., Italian w/ English subtitles
"Bittersweet yet often joyful. If you can imagine a movie that takes a Dardennes-like approach to a milieu more familiar from Fellini's La Strada, you're halfway ready for the rough-hewn kind of magic at hand. One of the year's most delightful finds."-Toronto Eye Weekly
Bathed in the neorealist tradition of Roberto Rossellini and Vittorio De Sica, Little Girl ("La Pivellina") is a captivating tale of people at the margins of society who open their hearts to a stranger.
In a run-down park on the outskirts of Rome, a two year-old girl is discovered and taken in by a family of hard-luck circus performers. A note in the child's pocket from a desperate mother reveals little about who she is or why she was left. As the bond grows between the girl and her surrogate family, this naturalistic drama becomes a revealing and soulful portrait of courage and discrimination, and of loss and togetherness.
