FiC Rating 4.5/5
Dir: Alice Rohrwacher
Why FiC Recommends?
- A deeply personal romanticism of growing up in a beekeeper’s family in the countryside, The Wonders is tremendously comforting yet layered.
- Harboring a celebration of the resilience of countryside struggle and a subtle criticism of older generation’s adherence to outdated traditions.
- The emotional complications are rendered with transparent honesty within a narrative interwoven by personal suffocation, melancholy and a yearning to break free.
