A Ciambra [Sub: Eng]

Description
In A CIAMBRA, a small Romani community in Calabria, Pio Amato is desperate to grow up fast. At 14, he drinks, smokes and is one of the few to easily slide between the region's factions - the local Italians, the African refugees and his fellow Romani. Pio follows his older brother Cosimo everywhere, learning the necessary skills for life on the streets of their hometown. When Cosimo disappears and things start to go wrong, Pio sets out to prove he's ready to step into his big brother's shoes but soon finds himself faced with an impossible decision that will show if he is truly ready to become a man.

A fascinating and considered study of outsider tensions, though a third-act turn that forces Pio to pick a side hammers the point home a little too hard.

It's a neo-realist study of a kid with special gifts for leadership, daring and friendship. And for stealing everything in sight.

Tim Curtin's handheld camerawork and Dan Romer's score are restless and energetic. Pio Amato, who is in almost every frame, makes for a charismatic lead. He is likable enough for the viewer to overlook his low-level lawlessness.

Viewers interested in a rarely-documented side of life will get caught up in this frank portrayal of a boy who's not sure how to be a man.

The film's rough vitality, fueled partly by Amato's ebullient relatives playing versions of themselves, can't mask those moments of contrivance, but it's absorbing all the same.

Carpignano is far less interested in the epic mechanics of how the flat screen TV falls off the truck, and far more on the personal daily details of the people inhabiting this world.

While A Ciambra is not a happy story, its vigor and authenticity deliver a sort of joy.
