While you probably already know the familiar names of the big films that have conquered Sundance, Berlin, Cannes, Venice and TIFF this year, there are plenty more films that journey their way city to city, country to country, festival to festival charming audiences and picking up accolades that don't quite get the same attention as their starrier competition. But they are definitely worth tracking down, and one such film is Rosa Karo's "The Italian Key."

While you probably already know the familiar names of the big films that have conquered Sundance, Berlin, Cannes, Venice and TIFF this year, there are plenty more films that journey their way city to city, country to country, festival to festival charming audiences and picking up accolades that don't quite get the same attention as their starrier competition. But they are definitely worth tracking down, and one such film is Rosa Karo's "The Italian Key."

The feature film debut by the Finnish director, "The Italian Key" was shot in the small Italian village Cabella Ligure (where Karo lives when she's not in Los Angeles), and tells the story of Cabella (the lovely newcomer Gwendolyn Anslow), whose Uncle Max dies, leaving her with titular key. She travels to Italy where falls in with three sisters and a ghost, and begins to uncover her past while looking ahead to the future. "The Italian Key" has picked up an armload of awards, appearing in eleven film festivals and walking away with fourteen trophies including Best Film, Best Script and Best Music among them.

Unfortunately, the film is without U.S. distribution, but hopefully that will change very soon. In the meantime, check out the trailer and poster for the movie below. It opens in Finland on December 16th.
