Bologna 1938 - Michele Casali (Silvio Orlando) is living a desperate situation: Giovanna (Alba Rohrwacher), his only child, a teenager, has killed out of jealousy his classmate and best friend. Within the middle-class environment in which the crime has ocurred, the story provokes strong emotion and disbelief. Avoiding jail, she is determined to be mentally disturbed and therefore locked up in a psychiatric hospital in Reggio Emilia where she remains until the age of 24 years (1945).

I'm not taking about jerky camera movement but movement like someone is having a serious seizure behind it. Is it supposed to make the film gritty & real? Because all it accomplished was me suffering a minor headache. Only good thing about this movie was Keira Knightley not being type cast as some girl next door type/girl you love to bring home to the parents but as a kick ass bad girl your mother warned you about! Based on a true story, in a way, about a model & daughter of an actor who turns her back on wealth for the excitement of being a bounty hunter.
