"Corpo Celeste" often stumbles, along with its 12-year-old heroine, Marta (Yle Vianello).

There are moments that suggest the director might do something better next time.

Though at times heavy-handed in its imagery and slow-paced, Rohrwacher's debut feature is remarkably unadorned and touching, putting forth a realistic portrait of modern Italy at a time when the country faces economic hardship as well as cultural changes.

The film makes neat if familiar associations between Catholic ritual and sexual identity, and between religion and civic corruption.

Rich, heady filmmaking that employs small strokes on a huge canvas.

Alice Rohrwacher's debut fictional feature is an uncommonly insightful portrait of nascent womanhood, assisted in no small measure by Vianello's disarmingly naturalistic performance.

Vianello gives a lovely, unforced performance as Marta, who begins to see that the blue-eyed, open-armed fuzzy Jesus she's being sold is a fake.

Grittily real but somehow dreamlike at the same time, coming of age tale Corpo Celeste is a quietly impressive feature debut for documentary maker Alice Rohrwacher.

Minor tonal inconsistencies are overcome by this intimate tale's naturalistic thesping and loose lensing style.

Corpo Celeste's acute sense of place, feel for adolescent confusion and miraculous resolution suggest that Rohrwacher is a talent to watch.

For those willing to overlook its few slips into heavy-handedness, "Corpo Celeste" tells a compelling story of a 12-year-old girl thrust into a strange new world.

Alice Rohrwacher's debut feature exhibits the sort of mannerisms a certain stripe of cinephile tends to dread, on or off the festival circuit.

Quietly compelling, the cerebral slice of social realism is well worth hunting down.

Corpo Celeste would be a treat in any season, but it's particularly refreshing amid the summer-movie bombast.
