Baarìa is a 2009 Italian film directed by Giuseppe Tornatore.
It was the opening film of the 66th Venice International Film Festival.
The film recounts life in the Sicilian town of Bagheria, from the 1920s to the 1980s, through the eyes of lovers Peppino (Francesco Scianna) and Mannina (Margareth Madè).
"Baaria" is an ancient sound, a magic formula, a key. The only one able to open the rusted chest in which lies the most Tornatore’s personal film. A funny and sad story of great love and overwhelming utopia. A legend full of heroes.
