A Street in Palermo Synopsis

Shut inside their cars, two women face off in a silent duel that is fought out in the intimate violence of their stares. A wholly female duel punctuated by the refusal to drink, eat and sleep; more obstinate than the sun of Palermo and more stubborn than the ferocity of the men who surround them. For, as in every duel, it is a question of life or death... It’s a Sunday afternoon. The sirocco is blowing pitilessly in Palermo when Rosa and Clara lose their way in the streets of the city and end up in a sort of alley: Via Castellana Bandiera. At the same moment, another car driven by Samira, crammed with members of the Calafiore family, arrives from the opposite direction and enters the same street.

Anything with Alba Rohrwacher in it gets my vote, and this one is no exception. A showdown between a lesbian couple and an elderly lady in a one-way street gets the whole neighbourhood involved, each driver refusing to back up. Having been to Palermo myself I know driving round there to be a nightmare, and this was a welcome, witty and bitterswet reminder.
