It is a story in which feelings struggle to find the right words to be able to express themselves La Ligne – The Invisible Line, Ursula Meier’s new film in cinemas from January 19, distributed by Satine Film. It all starts with the relationship between a daughter, Margaret (Stéphanie Blanchoud), a 35-year-old woman with a long history of inflicted and suffered violence and an emotional fragility that she often cannot contain in words alone, and a mother, Christina (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), who struggles to keep up with his creature until the limit is crossed and decides to report it. From that moment on, pending trial and for at least three months, Margaret is not allowed to come in contact with her mother nor come within a hundred yards of the family home.
Isolated and banished from her family, Margaret finds herself literally locked out and removed from her circle of loved ones. This line becomes an obstacle for her both literally and figuratively, making her desire to be closer than ever to her family exacerbate, so much so that she goes every day to the threshold of that border, as invisible as it is insurmountable. Presented in competition at the 72nd Berlin Film Festival, the 23rd Naples Film Festival and the Longtake Interactive Film Festival 2022, La Ligne – The Invisible Line it is a strong, intense story, directed with love and involvement by Meier, former author of Home, selected for the Critique Week at the Cannes Film Festival and awarded numerous international prizes and awards, and the award-winning Sister.
To make the film even more intense is the remarkable interpretation of the two leading actresses: Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, perfect in lending the face to a pianist who has abandoned her career as a soloist to devote herself to her three daughters, and Stéphanie Blanchoud, who manages to make her own the character of an emotionally unstable woman forced to deal with an aggressive temperament that seems impossible to keep at bay. The result is a hanging relationship, made up of silences and choked words, in which music and the evocative power of the two women are the masters, revealing how deep the relationship can be between a daughter and a mother when wounds are involved. that life has turned into anger and violence.
