Critic Reviews for Sicilian Ghost Story
Careful camera movement, distorting wide-angle lenses, and a hyperfocused sound design all contribute to the mysterious atmosphere, and Julia Jedlikowska gives a heartbreaking performance as the girl, who suffers the bittersweet ache of young love.
Co-directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza beautifully mix fairy tale and mythological tropes with the harsh reality of a Mafia kidnapping.
If Grassadonia and Piazza had simply retold the story, it would have been gripping enough, but they deepen the intensity and widen the meaning by letting the tale unfold in a strange filmic space between cruel reality and ghostly fantasy.
Sicilian Ghost Story is a melancholy poem to the part of us we can't allow to be wrung out by the complacency and compliance of adulthood.
It's an array of surprises and character introspections that take their time to manifest completely, but prove an inspired way for the directors to go about their business.
