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.

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

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.

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