Special Presentation
Da non perdere perché è un’occasione unica per rivederlo sul grande schermo.

In this ambitious and Palme d’Or nominated mystery adapted from Elena Ferrante’s eponymous novel, Delia, a Neapolitan artist who has lived for many years in Bologna, returns to Naples after the sudden death of her mother, Amalia. 

The officials have judged it suicide, but her mother’s exuberance and vivacity, which Delia remembers so well, give her pause. She sets out to find the truth and, in so doing, confronts her own unresolved feelings for her mother. As Delia tries to ascertain what happened in the days before Amalia’s death, she discovers parts of her mother’s life she never knew existed. And then there are Delia’s double-edged memories of her relationship with her mother. As the past spills into the present, Delia must come to grips with buried childhood traumas, which only reveal further, deeper conflicts.
