Four separate-but-interconnected stories - one for each season - about life in Sardinia.
Developing through four episodes marked by the four seasons, the film tells the story of many characters of different ages, strictly linked to Sardinia's world and whose fates seem to become accidentally intertwined.
Ballo a tre passi is a fine example of the encouraging renaissance of independent Italian cinema, in which young directors are turning afresh to regional subjects and locations. Like L'isola and Il dono, Ballo a tre passi skillfully conjures up a sense of its locale, avoids overdramatic narrative and is more concerned with the evocation of mood and atmosphere and a truth that can be found in simplicity and incident.
