The Story Of Piera (Storia Di Piera)

BBB.5

(out of 5)


 plays Piera, a young woman who grows up under the parentage of two extremely original overseers: both her mother () and father () have incestuous relations with her before they are committed to insane asylums.  Based on a semi-autobiographical synopsis by actress Piera Degli Esposti, the film focuses mainly on Piera’s viewpoint of her mother as she watches her navigate the world with both her charismatic charm and her damaged sense of sexual freedom. Oddly enough, the film features postcard-pretty images that recall innocent memories, but, of course, they’re just dressed that way. Huppert has the thankless, mild role here, while Schygulla shines as the fiery matriarch whose indulgence of passion leads her straight to the loony bin.
