Critic Reviews for Terraferma
Terraferma offers a sun-splashed meditation on compassion, tradition, tolerance, and generational change.
Crialese and co-screenwriter Vittorio Moroni portray a way of life on that island in complete uproar ..
Emanuele Crialese's film burns with a sense of this situation's inhumanity, and he gives a palpable sense of life in a place where the beauty attracts tourists, but the natives are barely getting by.
Audience Reviews for Terraferma
The film cinematography and locale are lovely to look at! Story could have been better but it manages to keep me engaged so all in all not a bad way to spend some time!
Funny and touching story that shows the plight of African immigrants trying to reach continental Europe via small fishing and tourist island in southern Italy. A couple of events are softened to keep the movie on the lighter side, but still an overall enlightening and enjoyable movie.
An involving story centered on the contrast between the traditions and the needs of a new generation in an island, which is reflected in the way the young protagonist has to deal with his problems - and the wonderful cinematography explores quite well the beautiful landscapes.
