The fragility of family relationships through the intimate communication between two young sisters.

15 – 20 | 2009 | Drama | Family | Italy | Live-Action

Sofia is the debut short film of young Roman director Carlo Sironi, which penetrates in the intimacy of two sisters with the background of a  silent and distant city. Clara observes her sister Sofia, locked in her own world, where there is no space for words and communication takes place only through objects, more effective than certain dialogues between a father and a daughter. Perhaps Clara is one who better understands Sofia’s silence and, in the desire to listen her voice, invents an imaginary dialogue between two dolls. It’s the only moment of connection until the game is interrupted, revealing the fragility of family relationships in which the silence of Sofia is a misunderstood signal. Delicate and sharp, like a fragments of glass.
