The story of a young French ultra-Orthodox woman and a divorced Italian farmer who both long to break free. Even though she is deeply unhappy and desperate to leave the faith, Esther has accompanied her father on their annual trip to Southern Italy to harvest etrogim a a kosher lemonsa a for the religious holiday of Sukkot. Elio, the non-Jewish owner of the farm, is grateful for their visit as it helps the farm financially. Alla Vita is a film that understands the power of subtlety. It isna t flashy or melodramatic, nor is it interested in undermining those who choose to live a life of devout faith. Instead, ita s much more driven by its charactersa desire for a life that is truly meant for them.
