Magari (If Only)
Alma, Jean and Sebastiano, the children of divorced parents, arrive in Rome from Paris on a visit to their father. During a holiday, the family’s tensions come to the surface.
A trip back into childhood and the gilded atmosphere of the 1980s, seen through the eyes of three siblings clinging to the desire to feel like a family. Touching on dreams and responsibilities, Elkann seamlessly directs her fine cast in a film that is gently but intensely moving, like a childhood memory. A self-aware and sincere debut, caressed by the grace of an approach that retains the enchanted but ferocious innocence of children.Daniela Persico
