Sacro GRA Review

Image for Sacro GRA

A documentary charting life on Rome's ring road, the Grande Raccordo Anulare.

★★★★

Inspired by Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities and made over three years, Gianfranco Rosi’s feature was the first actuality film to win the Golden Lion at Venice. Presenting a bustling snapshot of life along Rome’s 42.4-mile ring road, known as the ‘GRA’, it’s pure docu-soap, but is also touching, shrewd and sincere.

A fun and insightful slice of Roman life. Next up, M25: The Movie?
