After the War

Italy, France, Belgium 2017 | 93 minutes | Italian, French | Hebrew, English subtitles

Bologna, 2002. Opposition to the new labor law explodes in universities. The murder of a judge reopens old political wounds between Italy and France. Marco, a former radical left-wing activist who was sentenced for murder 20 years ago and since exiled in France, is accused of having ordered the assassination. The Italian government requests his extradition. Forced to flee with Viola, his 16-year-old daughter, his life, and that of his estranged family in Italy, will change forever. Annarita Zambrano’s debut, screened at Cannes’ Un Certain Regard competition, is a clever, enthralling film. Zambrano sensitively shifts between characters, while engaging with issues of individual morality and national responsibility.
