"Wonder" is a word for the way adults recall seeing the world as children.Told from Gelsomina's perspective, "The Wonders" gazes dispassionately upon the daily labors of Wolfgang and Angelica's family – four daughters and Coco, a friend in early middle age who washed up on the family's doorstep for reasons that don't warrant discussion.After a personal encounter with Catena herself, though, Gelsomina decides her family should apply to be one of the seven families on "Countryside Wonders".The film will have its Arab world premiere Beirut's European Film Festival Monday evening.Rohrwacher's film is an excellent piece of cinematographic writing. In this cast of amusing eccentrics, Maria Alexandra Lungu's turn as Gelsomina is clearly the standout of the film.
