Movie Info

In A CIAMBRA, a small Romani community in Calabria, Pio Amato is desperate to grow up fast. At 14, he drinks, smokes and is one of the few to easily slide between the region's factions - the local Italians, the African refugees and his fellow Romani. Pio follows his older brother Cosimo everywhere, learning the necessary skills for life on the streets of their hometown. When Cosimo disappears and things start to go wrong, Pio sets out to prove he's ready to step into his big brother's shoes but soon finds himself faced with an impossible decision that will show if he is truly ready to become a man.

Critic Reviews for A Ciambra

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (13)

Writer-director Jonas Carpignano displays a fine feeling for the simple joys and blunt sorrows of life at the margins, and a great regard for his compelling young star.

Carpignano is far less interested in the epic mechanics of how the flat screen TV falls off the truck, and far more on the personal daily details of the people inhabiting this world.

It's a neo-realist study of a kid with special gifts for leadership, daring and friendship. And for stealing everything in sight.

Through Tim Curtin's kinetic handheld camerawork, Carpignano immerses the viewer in Pio's experience.

Viewers interested in a rarely-documented side of life will get caught up in this frank portrayal of a boy who's not sure how to be a man.

January 26, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

While A Ciambra is not a happy story, its vigor and authenticity deliver a sort of joy.
