After Hassan, a Tunisian mechanic, starts spying on Mara, a young substitute teacher waiting to leave for Brazil, she drives him away but then begins to date him. Aspiring journalist Giovanni observes the development of their disturbing relationship, but soon his life also gets turned upside down.

MUBI's take

Italian master Carlo Mazzacurati directs Valentina Lodovini in this lyrical and very personal small-town tale. Elegantly photographed and echoing the cinema of Fellini and Olmi, The Right Distance cleverly observes moral prejudice while resonating far beyond the microcosm of its characters.
