Storyline

Caterina è una suora ed ha preso i voti provvisori da una mese quando andando per un parco incontra un uomo che ha trovato un neonato abbandonato e glielo affida per portarlo in ospedale. Dopo averlo fatto, Caterina comincia ad andare a trovare il piccolo e gli si affeziona tanto da tentare di risalire alla madre tramite il maglione in cui era avvolto. Arriva così fino ad Ernesto, quarantunanni, proprietario di una lavanderia lasciatagli assieme ai debiti dal padre. Ernesto è scontento della vita ed è tutto centrato sui suoi problemi tanto da non ricordare neanche i nomi delle sue collaboratrici. La madre del bambino è forse Teresa, sua ex dipendente ed Ernesto è forse il padre. Inizia così per Caterina una crisi sul suo stato di suora e per Ernesto la consapevolezza di non essere l'unico uomo disgraziato sulla terra. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

One of the finest movies I've seen in a long while.
31 December 2000 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

A quiet movie that makes you appreciate humanity. The characters are made very real, and you feel for their situation. It had me reflecting much on my own life and the people in it, where I was going, and such. Not sure how to describe how or why it moved me, but I suspect it was the combination of a) slow pacing, allowing you time to notice things in the lives portrayed, to draw your own conclusions, expectations, to identify with numerous little things that happen. b) a beautiful musical score c) fine acting d) fine cinematography e) numerous story threads, presented in a non-judgmental way, such as the novices struggling with the choice of nun-hood; the laundry-owner's aloof life; and the mother-daughter relationships. f) adequate suspense, in that you wanted to know how things would resolve Anyhow, am just very grateful for such movies being made.
