More about the Film
Richi (Moisé Curia) is on the road with a little girl (Anna Malfatti) in a camper van through southern Germany. They have a good time with each other, dress up, dance and laugh a lot. He is a seed salesman, she his little doll. An unusual couple, but happy? When the two stop off at a restaurant, the landlord (Heio von Stetten) becomes sceptical. Something is not right here! What's more, the girl speaks a very rare language: Ladin. Meanwhile, in Rome, police inspector Milia Demetz (Cosmina Stratan) is investigating cyberspace and is hot on the heels of a paedophile network. When she discovers a girl in one of the anonymous videos, she is soon certain: the lasciviously photographed child is Magdalena Senoner, who disappeared in Tyrol at the age of five. But who is behind the camera? When the landlord forwards the footage from his surveillance camera to the police, all the threads start to come together. But can Milia save little Magdalena?
Child abuse in cyberspace and grooming are unfortunately still a sad reality! This makes a film like "An Uncertain Border", which approaches this taboo subject sensitively and without the usual clichés, all the more important. The Italian director Isabella Sandri spent years researching with the Roman police for the script and was extensively advised by the children's rights organisation Save the Children. A fascinating mixture of realistic psychological thriller and sensitive outsider ballad, reminiscent in its poetic power of Kubrick's "Lolita" or Fellini's "La Strada". Great cast with Cannes prize winner Cosmina Stratan ("Beyond the Hills"), young actress Anna Malfatti in her first cinema role and Moisé Curia.
