Amalia e Giancarlo

Amalia e Giancarlo

«Amalia e Giancarlo» tells the touching emigration history of eighty-six-year-old Amalia Malchiodi-Cadieli. Sixty years ago, the Surselva native travelled to the United States with a well-to-do family and later settled in New York. But she never forgot her home and her language. The film accompanies Amalia and her son Giancarlo on a trip back to her Grisons roots. Amalia playfully recounts the adventures of her life. Raised in humble circumstances in Sagogn, she moved away at the age of eighteen to work in a hotel in Klosters. She served prominent vacationers from all over the world and met an American family who hired her as a nanny, taking her with them to the US. Amalia travelled extensively with this family and was even Ernest Hemingway's guest in Havana during the Cuban Revolution. On her way back to her homeland Amalia ended up staying on in New York. In the film by Kurt Reinhard and Christoph Schreiber, Amalia takes her now fifty-year-old son Giancarlo to the places where her amazing travels began more than sixty years ago.

I cannot say that this is Kurt Reinhard best film, because it is the only that I have seen by him. But it has gotten my highest rating, so that counts for something.
