64th TIFF: Greek Premiere

Blondi is about to turn forty. She has a twenty-year-old son, Mirko, with whom she is good friends; but while Mirko has high life goals and strives to achieve them, Blondi seems to wish to remain in a state of never-ending adolescence. Enter Blondi, an adorable little girl who refuses to grow up! Dolores Fonzi gives an incredible performance in the title role that she also introduced and directed, creating one of the most interesting female characters we've seen on screen lately. A truly feelgood “coming-out-of-age” comedy, irresistibly optimistic and full of energy, leaves a long-lasting wide smile on our faces. Tender, funny, human, carefree, and unruly like the main character heroine, the film leaves you no choice but to fall in love with it.
