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

The best Margherita Buy for a delicate and profound movie.
2 April 1999 | by (Padova Italy) – See all my reviews

Sister Caterina is going to take the final vows. But she finds a newborn child, Fausto, in a public park. This event creates new questions for her, for Ernesto (who thinks to be Fausto's father) that Caterina contacts trying to find Fausto's mother. The life is often confined in roles, "uniforms", that help people to survey. When something strange happens, people must go outside the uniforms to find a higher level of passion, love and life. These profound thoughts are suggested by mean of a "light" movie.

Margherita Buy is the best nun I've ever seen at the cinema.
