Interview with Valeria Golino, director of Miele

Valeria Golino: "I read the book A nome tuo by Mauro Covacich three years ago. I found it to be a striking book. Very contemporary, painful and provoking, with a type of female character Italian literature and film haven´t yet seen. I talked about it with Viola Prestieri and Riccardo Scamarcio and I put a request in to buy the book´s rights. Initially, we were frightened. We weren´t sure whether it might be too difficult for me to take on as a first film."
