Luigi Lo Cascio,
Luigi Maria Burruano,
The most beautiful day of my life is a great concert of the most distinguished acting I have seen in a long time.
The Italian family at its best: meeting every Sunday for a lunch at the house of the conservative and traditionalistic grandma. And while on the outside everybody is keeping their face, the relationships within and between the family members have their classic taboos which cannot be touched: the brother's homosexuality, the sister's affair, etc. The longing for love is so eminent, it almost scares. And while we have to wait for the catharsis to arrive, we learn that there is no right or wrong about love. And that the individual perspective about love is just the one there is... no absolute truths, no demons of the known... just the personal stories and their roots.
The director did a great job with unusual camera positions. They show the hidden, the undiscovered... Thanks!
