Dormant Beauty

Bella Addormentata
Italy | 2012 | Marco Bellocchio

Dormant Beauty

Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty, Il Divo) and Isabelle Huppert star in the new film by master Italian filmmaker Marco Bellocchio (Good Morning, Night; My Mother's Smile). Inspired by the controversial Englaro case that polarized Italy in 2009 (the father of a young woman who had been in a coma for 17 years tried to get her legally taken off of life support), the movie tells four separate stories that revolve around euthanasia or reflect the Englaro affair: two young lovers take opposite sides on the issue, a famous actress attends to her coma-stricken daughter, a doctor falls in love with a sedated, suicidal drug addict, a legislator in Berlusconi's party anguishes over a vote outlawing mercy killing. “Marco Bellocchio is one of the great filmmakers of Italian cinema, and, still working at 74, he may be the greatest of those living. But his movies, when they're released in the States at all, come and go like zephyrs…Don't let this one slip through your fingers.” –Village Voice.
