New Italian flick 'There's Still Tomorrow' jolts Italy with stark realities about domestic violence.
'There's Still Tomorrow' by Paola Cortellesi follows a female character who greets the day with an unprovoked slap from her husband.
What follows is an unsettling blend of everyday routines and raw violence.
Believed to be a nod to the poignant Italian neo-realist classics, this film highlights past tragedies through a sardonic lens.
While delving into the depths of a patriarchal society's history, Cortellesi encapsulates Italy's struggle with domestic abuse and gender inequality.
With a staggeringly successful box office presence that has just passed Greta Gerwig’s 'Barbie', Cortellesi's work has sparked discussions on social media around domestic violence in Italy and Western countries.
'There’s Still Tomorrow' blurs historical context with contemporary issues, emerging as a poignant critique of cultural norms and a beacon of social change.
