We gave it a B

Emanuele Crialese’s summery drama sighs a bit too poetically about the romance of mental illness. Valeria Golino, shimmery as a mermaid, plays Grazia, an earthy, free-spirited Italian fisherman’s wife who’s frequently so seriously crazy that her family and friends don’t know whether to admire her sexy follia or send her away for psychiatric treatment.
