IL CRATERE / Crater

IL CRATERE / Crater

The Crater is a land of underdogs, indistinct space, constant noise. Rosario is a street vendor, a gitane of village fairs, who gives away soft toys to whoever draws a winning number. The war he has declared against his own destiny has the immature and indolent body of his thirteen-year-old daughter: Sharon is pretty and can sing, and in this hotbed of stopgaps and desperate living, she's his weapon for survival. But success becomes an obsession, and talent becomes a punishment. (Venice International Film Critics’ Week)
