It's great that a documentary has broken through and won the Lion, but we're a little baffled that a film as unremarkable as this one was the one to do so.

t's passible, inconsequential and amusing entertainment, lacking any kind of intellectual conviction and instead offering mild, insight-neural tall tales of quotidian struggles and dippy suburbanites in its place.

The idea remains more absorbing than the final product.

It's a small film with big ideas, and certainly the most interesting documentary about a highway you're likely ever to see.

Rosi's roam on the orbital road of the title is a fascinating, witty and meditative piece which delivers an alternative view of Rome, far from the postcard locales of the Coliseum and La Dolce Vita.

An essential counterpoint to the city's life in cinema, the wisest Roman film in years.

Rosi seeks out the forgotten folk who the commuters leave behind: an eccentric bunch that includes prostitutes, paramedics and parasitic weevils.

While it may prove frustratingly mundane for some, thanks to its intrinsic humanness Sacro GRA has a quiet power despite its crumbling aesthetic.

Sacro Gra's charms have much to do with the director's spot-on selection of a brace of engaging or kooky characters from what must have been dozens of potential candidates.

Sacro GRA is the sort of beautifully observed, leisurely paced verité documentary that gets made all too rarely now.
