This narrative feature is a vital portrait of a life lived outside the strictures of society, which finds a family residing in rural Italy slave to the mad whims of patriarch and enthusiastic apiarist Wolfgang (Louwyck). Events are experienced through the eyes of 12 year old Gelsomina, who is played by terrific newcomer Maria Alexandra Lungu. This coming-of-age story is sensitive and non-judgmental, and knows the value of its appealing young stars. Ultimately, that makes their credible and entertaining antics its focus.
