The film unfolds like a bildungsroman, animated with the whimsical imagination of a folk tale. Flippa is its main character. Her mother has disappeared. We see her along the roads that lead her to her sister Furia and the witch-mothers of Barranconi in Sardinia. “Do you think this is why mama left? Because she couldn’t bear to pass on the rules of a world that steals our freedom?” With its caustic analysis of Jane Austen’s ”Persuasion”, a chainsaw slashing Christian symbols and the materialistic views on the exploitation of women, ”Losing Faith” is a breath of fresh air that’s not afraid of the excesses or insolent vitality of its actors. – FIDMarseille
