Storyline

In Genoa, Agata runs her bookstore and, without meaning to, causes light bulbs and appliances to burn out. At the same time that a younger man declares his attraction to her, her brother Gustav, a morose architect, a distant husband, and an indifferent father, discovers that he was adopted and has a half-brother in the Po Valley. To Agata's great pain, she sees her young man with another woman - plus, Gustav cuts himself off from her and from his wife and son. Agata goes to the Po Valley, meets Gustav's brother and the brother's wife, and tries to reconnect by letting life wash over her. Wisdom comes from traditional Chinese medicine and from good literature. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

If you don't venture into the tiger's den, you'll never achieve anything.
12 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Silvio Soldini's previous film, Blood and Tulips< was very good, so I thought I would give him another try.

This film was nominated for eight David di Donatello awards (Italian Oscar). Sadly, it won none, but that doesn't take away from it's excellence.

Licia Maglietta, Rosalba in Blood and Tulips, is Agata, a middle-aged book store owner. She starts and affair with Nico (Claudio Santamaria), who is 13 years younger. A cougar? (In Italy, a puma) Meanwhile, her brother Gustavo (Emilio Solfrizzi) finds out that he was the product of a one night stand, and has a brother, Romeo (Giuseppe Battiston). I have to say that Romeo is one flashy dresser.

The characters mentioned and their partners go through the travails of life with humor and love and sadness, just as we ll do. It was a sweet picture.
