the duty
13 September 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A mother. Her son. A trip. And swimming course. All as portrait of a tragedy. Something gives to the film a bitter realism discovering, scene by scene, the drama who you feel from the beginning. Because you feel "Delfinen " as a motherhood film. But this feeling is just the start point. Because it is a film about the perception of reality. About the duty, the duty defining entire effort of a woman to escape from her past web and to confront against the truth. A film about family. And the sacrifice definining it.
