Agata and The Storm

There are qualities great Italian movies share : a gentleness of the unexpected, an acceptance among people of one another’s foibles, an absense of guns and car chases, rich vibrant colors and a kind of electricity.

In ‘Agata and The Storm,’ Agata ( Licia Maglietta) actually crackles with energy, shorting out her computer, hair dryer, and inumerable lights. All of this is treated lightly, with a shrug and a sigh; before the real business of life and the film’s story moves on. Agata has taken a lover 10 years her junior; her architect brother discovers he is adopted. This draws Agata into her brothers new and eclectic family.
