CATERINA IN THE BIG CITY
a film by Paolo Virzì
The sixth movie of the Women in Cinema Film Festival.
Directed by the talented Paolo Virzì, Caterina va in cittµ begins when Caterina’s father Giancarlo is transferred for work from a small country town to Rome, and the 12-year-old Caterina finds herself in a completely new world.
Caterina’s new classmates are divided politically into right and left cliques, and the shy naïve girl must develop her identity and friendships in a social environment to which it is hard for her to adapt. Caterina will grow up quickly here, learning much about affection, courage and loyalty while still trying to follow her dreams, but finding out soon how complicated, disappointing and unpredictable life can be.
Paolo Virzì (b. 1964) is one of Italy’s best-known contemporary directors, having demonstrated his filmmaking talent and compassionate but critical vision in various genres since 1994. Caterina va in città (2003) is considered to be one of his most intense works. A vivid and energetic portrait of contemporary Italy, the movie is a must-see for its sharp but funny commentary on youth, human relationships, dreams and universal emotions.
