"Terraferma" has an awful lot of things going on in it. Set on the isle
of Sicily off of Italy's southern coast, there's a generational battle
going on between a grandfather, his son and a grandson over the family
fishing boat and business. There's a battle going on between the
grandson and his mother over his future. There's a battle going on
between the business/tourism faction of the island and the problem of
illegal immigration. There's a battle between the Italian Coast Guard
and the older generation of fishermen over the practice of the
traditional "Law of the Sea." There's a battle between the local police
force (the carabinieri) and the fishermen.
All these battles come together one fateful night when the grandfather
adheres to tradition and refuses to leave African emmigrants in the
water to drown. The ramifications of this act reverberate through all
members of his family, even more so when he refuses to turn a pregnant
woman over to the police and gives her shelter.
The film focuses on the character of Filippo, the grandson torn between
the generations. Respectful and almost adoring of his grandfather, his
belief in him (and his grandfather's beliefs) is challenged in the
film's most disturbing scene. He is given the chance to uphold the "Law
of the Sea" - and fails.
It sounds hackneyed to call "Terraferma" a 'coming of age' story. The
difference here is that Filippo is not the only one coming of age. The
grandfather, the son, the grandson, the mother and the nation itself
are all coming of age - a new, global age with a whole new set of
challenges. How do traditions survive in this age? With great
difficulty, but by one person at a time.
