Excerpt of the film
A woman's odyssey from doting motherhood to a state of independence whilst addressing an invisible and anonymous man.
In one long shot this adaptation of La Mamma Fricchettona, a monologue by Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo, shows Viviane De Muynck in a humorous elucidation of a woman' s odyssey from doting motherhood to a state of independence whilst addressing an invisible and anonymous man. In an ambiance of a warehouse filled with white sacks the protagonist vociferously relates her non-existent relationship to husband and child and her escape to the alternative underground of squatters and punks, who are more of a family to her than her own brood.
