The Wait

22 December - Cinema Zuid, Antwerp

Juliette Binoche is unapologetically arresting in Piero Messina’s story about love and grief. A mother loses her son and soon receives a surprise visit from his fiancée, who is unaware of her lover’s death. Contemplative and visually striking, The Wait is Messina’s first feature, and while the premise is at times difficult to grasp, this dazzling effort by one of the disciples of Pablo Sorrentino shows much promise for the new generation of Italian cinema.
