Drama, by Maria Martinelli, Italy, 2023.
Hanna meets her lover in an isolated place, a refuge in the mountains. The present and the past intertwine in search of a possible redemption, while the choices to be made, such as that of a child on the way, can no longer wait. In that place, together and isolated, shreds of their past life appear in the room and seem to dance with their present life. An enigmatic mirror of their lives lived with other people, at other ages. In those fragments we see missed appointments, broken hopes, pieces of life like a cell phone ringing and no one answering and like in a puzzle, which slowly comes together, we sense something that unites their lives.
Is there a truth that we tell ourselves to others? Redemption is the story of a woman, of the complex life that she finds herself facing, of the moral choices that follow one another in her life. In romantic encounters we don't always talk about our experiences and perhaps loving each other refers exactly to this instinctive peculiarity, to the attempt to reconstruct an existence beyond our own past, which sometimes we even hide ourselves. But the past is often a threshold that we must cross if we want to start living in the present again.
