Case study

Le quattro volte

This is one of the few documentary films in the corpus. It was supported with Eurimages funding and it was presented at the Quinzaine des réalisateurs at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. Though the film gained widespread critical acclaim, it was not a great success in terms of international gross.
