Storyline

Tommi (11) and his slightly older sister Viola live in the city with their father. They cope with being a single parent family until their mother shows up, having disappeared without trace - not for the first time, we soon learn. These are the four protagonists in a bittersweet portrait of their ongoing struggle with love, friendship, puberty and life in general. Written by Swie Tio <sweet_t_prod@hotmail.com>

A Work of Genius
23 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is unbelievably real and uncomfortable. It does not rely upon any action, twists or thrills, just simply upon amazing performances and a thoroughly engrossing story.

Dysfunctional families have often been the main theme for films, but I have never seen such a true to life depiction as this.

Kim Rossi Stuart is obviously a man of great vision, and captures this as though he has been directing for years despite this being his directorial debut. Not only this, but he gives the strongest performance as the father figure - Renato. He portrays every aspect of this character with conviction. I found myself weighing up his character and trying to figure out whether he was actually a good guy or not: he was an emotional bully, stubborn and obviously favoured his daughter over his son. Beside that he was also loving, supportive (in his own way) and provided for his family in the best ways he could. You understand why he is like this though, dealing with inadequacy in work, as well as with his wife who comes and go's, leaving him for wealthy men, and having sole responsibility for his children. I'm sure you can see how captivated I was...

Alessandro Morace also brought a lot to the table with his performance as Tommi, the son. He seemed slightly emotionless due to the amount he had to deal with. He also managed to portray a look of such maturity and wisdom for his age that warmed you to his character.

This film was my introduction to Kim Rossi Stuart, and now I am looking forward to following the rest of his career as well as everything prior to the masterpiece: Anche Libero Va Bene.
