Pressed to rush things through so that an ambitious architect's new building can break ground, single-mom land surveyor Lucia (Alba Rohrwacher, HUNGRY HEARTS, I AM LOVE) grinds things to a halt first when she discovers that the old maps are inaccurate and need redoing, then again after the Virgin Mary (FILL THE VOID's Hadas Yaron) appears to her in the field and commands her to build a church instead. Gianni Zanasi's quirky comedy won the Europa Cinema Label prize at the 2018 Directors' Fortnight in Cannes. DIR/SCR Gianni Zanasi; SCR Giacomo Ciarrapico, Michele Pellegrini, Federica Pontremoli; PROD Beppe Caschetto, Rita Rognoni. Italy, 2018, color, 110 min. In Italian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
