Vera is an absolute triumph.
One of the finest performances of the year.

Matthew Joseph Jenner, International Cinephile Society

the pleasant taste of a timeless reality
with its many imperfections  almost magically perfect
A reality as ephemeral as wonderfully fascinating.

Marina Pavido, Cabiria Magazine

Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel have tailored a gorgeous lead role for Vera Gemma
A superb film

VERA is also an exploration of the Italian soul. And quite an exciting film about being and appearances and the gray zones in between.
