Dormant Beauty (Italian: Bella addormentata) is a 2012 Italian drama film directed by Marco Bellocchio and starring Toni Servillo and Isabelle Huppert. The film was selected to compete for the Golden Lion at the 69th Venice International Film Festival. For this film Maya Sansa won the David di Donatello for Best Supporting Actress.
In 1992 the young Eluana Englaro (because of an incident remains) is in a coma. She is deemed incurable. In 2009 her parents opt to euthanize her. In Italy it isn't legal to do this; the Catholic church and politics are hurled ruthlessly against them.
In the meantime episodes occur among acquaintances of Eluana — a young woman decides to kill herself, wanting to ingest a massive dose of heroin. She is persuaded to stop by a doctor. A member of the government of Berlusconi refuses to align himself with the party and plans to vote against a bill that will make euthanasia illegal.
