This is the story of an abandonment, where a family like any else is left by the husband. It is intense, brave, and not for the faint of heart.
It will be most significant for those of us that underwent this experience in their life, as dumped partners and parents, as neglected children. The precision with which all the psychological and practical details of a family break-up are described is surprising - but also, if you went through it, deeply disturbing. In this case, I recommend caution. But, it could also help you in elaborating your loss, and getting some hope in the end.
For anyone else, it still is worth seeing, for a memorable performance by one of the best Italian actresses of these years, and to try to get a glimpse of these feelings.
