23min | France/Ita | by Juliette Saint-Sardos
The Nightingales is the story of a family’s redevelopment. When a French man (HENRI) comes to Rome to see his daughter (ISADORA), he is received by a violent letter from her. The young girl is disturbed by his new relationship with ANAIS. While the father and daughter are playing cat and mouse in the streets, Anais is doing an Italian pilgrimage, to pay tribute to her mother, who died in Rome a long time ago. Essentially, the question is : how and when do we become a woman, and leave childhood ?
