Euronews' correspondent rates it among the best films of the festival so far.


The cast of ‘Daughter of Mine’ drew crowds to the red carpet in Berlin.

Set in Sardinia, Laura Bispuri’s film explores two very different versions of motherhood from two women with a secret connection.

A fight begins for the affection of a ten-year-old girl who loves the mother she has always known, but is captivated by the other woman.

Actress Alba Rohrwacher told euronews:

"We had to find a balance between these two characters. It was not easy, but in the end I hope we succeeded."

While fellow actress Valeria Golino added:

“I needed to master this character, who is so strange, so strong, so intense. Also, I wanted to work with Alba and Laura and with little Sara."

Our correspondent, Wolfgang Spindler rates this among the best films shown so far in the Berlinale International Film Festival.

"This movie could be so far a very hot and promising candidate for one of the Bear awards, but we still have one week to go", he said.
