"There Will Come a Day"
World Cinema Dramatic Competition
Grade: two-and-one-half out of four stars
The lush, awe-inspiring rainforests of the Amazon is a main character in Giorgio Diritti's third film, and he and cimenatographer Roberto Cimatti capture the dark as well as light elements at play in this intriguing film that ultimately loses its focus. Subjects such as as colonialism, loss, faith, isolation and a colorful life crowd the film from exploring the main character Augusta (played by Italian Jasmine Trinca) and her struggles as he joins a favela community that works alongside the river. Augusta, who is running away from an unfathomable loss, isn't given a whole lot to say, and her steely eyes reveal nothing of the battles she is fighting inside her mind and body. It is the rare film that treats faith with depth, and this is definitely a film that has a soul. But I wish Augusta was as much a force as the Amazon.
