One of the discoveries of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Fiore is a tenderhearted Romeo and Juliet-style romance set in a young offenders prison. Teenager Daphne (Daphne Scoccia) is arrested for theft. She adjusts to a new life, making friends with her cellmate and attending classes that could give her a future profession. Then she catches sight of Josh (Josciua Algeri) who lives on the men’s side of the prison. Lingering glances and stolen conversations build into the hint of a romance but can love thrive in the most impossible of circumstances?
This is an award-winning drama from Claudio Giovannesi, the director of Ali Blue Eyes.
