Clare of Assisi is both a saint and a revolutionary: she prays and fights for her freedom, for recognition by the pope and for the rights of women. And she works miracles!

Assisi, 1211: Eighteen-year-old Clare and her sister abscond from the home of their wealthy parents to join the recently founded Franciscan Order. Their aim is to live in poverty and in service of God. Through her strong faith, her courage and her deeds, Clare soon becomes a charismatic trailblazer. She fights for papal recognition of her way of life, but also for the rights of women. Even more: she sings, dances and heals people.

›Chiara‹ emerged as the big winner at the Venice Film Festival. No fewer than five awards went to director Susanna Nicchiarelli, costume designer Laura Montaldi and leading actress Margheritta Mazzucco, who is a real find and a revelation.

This is a wonderful film that is full of wonder.


Regisseurin, Drehbuchautorin und Schauspielerin Susanna Nicchiarelli hat einen Doktor in Philosophie. Auch vor dem grandiosen Erfolg von ›Chiara‹ wurden ihre Filme wie ›Cosmonaut‹ oder ›Nico, 1988‹ vielfach ausgezeichnet und fanden großen internationalen Zuspruch.
