FOR NONNA ANNA - LUIS DE FILIPPIS (2017)

Written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Luis De Filippis, For Nonna Anna won the Special Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. It tells the story of Chris, a transgender teenager who is caring for her elderly, Italian grandmother (nonna). Chris expects her nonna to disapprove of her new gender but will the older woman surprise her? There is little dialogue - and what little there is often in Italian - making it feel like a mood piece and somewhat reminiscent (like many festival films) of Lynne Ramsay's early shorts. It is also filmed in the 4:3 format made popular by Andrea Arnold and which this reviewer finds slightly pretentious. If you like the Sundance-winning For Nonna Anna by Luis De Filippis, be sure to rate it and share it.
