Why watch this film?
Argentine actress Dolores Fonzi (Wind Remains, I'm Your Fan) makes her directorial debut with Blondi, a comedy-drama about the eponymous single mother (Fonzi) and her son, Mirko (Toto Rovito). Their relationship is more like that of friends than mother-son: they go to concerts and parties together, share secrets and marijuana. Blondi portrays a simple story in which the events are a pretext to analyze this form of motherhood compared to others in a society where the expectations of the role are still quite rigid, but without falling into didacticism or becoming a pamphlet movie. Fonzi imparts an authentic and spontaneous spirit that, even if it is at times scattered in its narrative, is very fun and emotional. Read more in our full review.
