Mia Madre DVD
Compelling multi-national drama follows Margherita (Margherita Buy), a filmmaker dealing with simultaneous personal and professional crises.

Nanni Moretti (who also co-wrote and directed) co-stars. 107 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Italian and English. In English and Italian with English subtitles.
