Very close to Memorial Day, director Roberto Faenza’s most recent effort is coming up: Anita B. , a story that stresses the heavy and painful importance of remembering and the evocation of the past with all of its consequences .

Anita ( Eline Powell) is a Jewish girl who barely escaped the massacre of the nazi death camps , accompanied by the young Eli (Robert Sheehan ) to Aunt Monika ( Andrea Osvart )’s house ,in Czechoslovakia . Here she tries to rebuild her life , but the hostility of the outside world crushes her and hatred begins to creep even into her new family.

The film does not want to increas the already rich corpus devoted to the subject of the Holocaust : it is easy to fall into rhetoric while talking about such a sensitive subject, and for that reason Faenza manufactures a product that tries to go beyond, by telling a personal story of physical and moral prisons, explaining in the best way a human and spiritual journey in search of his own self in a world full of hatred and resentment , built on the ashes of a terrible conflict.

On the outside the film may seem like a melodrama shot with a language more or less conventional , which, on the contrary, serves to make the diegetic structure more solid : the conventionality of the images and the narrative build on the strength of some interpretations , most notably that of the talented Robert Sheehan who plays the ambiguous Eli , who, although in possess of an ambiguous morality, at the end of the film can not be condemned because on the chessboard of History there are neither winners nor losers , but only victims : everyone then tries in his own way to respect the fundamental precept of Jewish life , which imposes an imperative moral to live to the end of existence.

The character of Eli, a classic Jewish Guy which has its roots in literature and cinema -Jewish Americans of the twentieth century, makes counterpart to the fragility of the Anita heroine, desperately searching for her true identity , canceled after the captivity. But the process of self-awareness is painful and goes through difficult and arduous trials, and no one can condemn or even judge the characters’ behavior because , in the end , all of them are trying to find themselves at the bottom of a swampy abyss.

For Anita hope is hanging on a thin thread to the past that does not break, on the ancestors’ distant voices and on the Yiddishkeit that prompted her to seek, desperately , her place in the world.

Inspired by the semi-autobiographical novel by Edith Bruck , Quanta stella c’è nel cielo , Anita B. is the story of a journey into the many facets of ego and soul, a direct heir to the previous works of Faenza as Jona che visse nella Balena (Jonah Who Lived in the Whale) or Prendimi L’Anima (Take My Soul) , constituting with them kind of an ideal trilogy about human identity, hard-tried by the dramas of existence.
