| What are prisons for? A beautiful story
The weirdest thing about this film is the title: fiore. It means "flower" but for the whole length of the movie we don't get to see any or even hear the word. Except for the star of the movie (a non-pro actress) whose real and fictional names are both daphne, which is the botanical name of a genus of shrubs. Intentionally or not when the closing titles are over we can't avoid thinking about both the film and the lead actress as a flower, young and wounded, bold and frail, beautiful and venomous, facing destruction and still faithful to her nature.

She is great. She doesn't steal the focus of the viewer, she doesn't overact. She's perfect as a confused, bewildered, passionate, abandoned adolescent looking for her place and something nice and meaningful to do. The plot, the photography, the writing, even the soundtrack: everything seems very simple or - better - essential; flowerish - again. Yet the realism level is quite high: very good job to the writers, the director and the actors.

The director's agenda (he gave interviews about it) is to show how pointless is putting young "criminals" into a prison. While the next question to this main topic rests unanswered (then what should we do?) in the film, I really liked how he showed why his perspective deserves to be pondered (if not adopted) by a wider audience. Unfortunately very few will have access to this film: but if you have a chance, you should watch it. 8
