one of the roughs, a kosmos Carmine Grimaldi

Film index A to Z

Maggie lives in the country. She has long red hair and boyish looks; she’s still a child but already a young woman. There isn’t much she can’t do with her own two hands. She feeds the chickens and the lambs, tinkers constantly and looks after her reclusive father, with whom she forms an inseparable duo. Carmine Grimaldi brings us inside this small, isolated world, capturing all its mystery. He follows Maggie on her chores through a land of soil and dust, where there’s no real line between work and play. Set to the discordant melodies Maggie and her father play on their piano, one of the roughs, a kosmos is a stark, mesmerizing document of a childhood unlike others.
