Baarìa explores love and marriage, growing up and growing old, poverty and exploitation and times of peace and war with Peppino at the heart the narrative which follows him from childhood, to a secret romance with the beautiful Mannina (Margareth Madè), to his political ascent and personal fight against the mafia.
Baarìa is an emotional journey to the heart of Italy, beautifully written and directed by Tornatore, it is a grand and luxurious film to lose yourself in this January.
