Critic Reviews for Along the Ridge (Anche libero va bene)
A little over-long, 'Libero' loses its rhythm towards the end but still remains a thoroughly convincing portrait of a family.
Amid a crop of fine performances, Morace brings stand-out subtlety with his hurt and confusion at the betrayals of the adult world.
Wise beyond his years, Morace's Tommi is a knockout performance of resilience and acceptance of his parents' foibles and by the final scene of this assured debut feature there is unlikely to be a dry eye in the house.
Kim Rossi Stuart's directorial debut exposes the cracks in a family with edgy incisiveness.
Letting the drama gradually unfold, Rossi Stuart proves an adept helmer and captures the anxieties of childhood brilliantly.
Audience Reviews for Along the Ridge (Anche libero va bene)
A very emotional family drama with great performances, especially by the child actor is remarkably genuine.
Along the ridge was a story of a dis functional family told through the eyes of Tommi an 11 year old boy. He lived with his father Renato and sister Viola. Their mother Stefania had abandon them long time ago for some other man. Renato with all his problems he still loves this kids and try to please them in what way he can. He wanted Tommi to be a professional swimmer, but Tommi's passion lies elsewhere, Football. When the mother suddenly appeared one day out of no where, there was hope and happiness in the family. But then she disappeared and leave the family again in despair. This movie was so real,beautifully directed by Kim Rossi Stuart who played the role of Tommi's father Renato. A must to see.
Crafting first movie by the actor Rossi Stuart.A sweet and after a while tormenting Italian film challenging the traumas of youth from a strict and at the same time content father.When the mother is being...liberal (ironically,I sympathized with her more in the finale),daddy is being mad but by no means a beater.Fury is present all over and yet...it seems a simple story.Good attempt.
