A superb performance in a clever, delicate movie
14 October 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A superb performance by Margherita Buy playing an abandoned wife who recovers her self-consciousness and finds the strength for a new start. The story follows a classical, quite conventional path but the real strength-point is the sharp but sympathetic look upon the sudden emotional earthquake in a normal, everyday family life. While avoiding psychological commonplaces, the movie sketches realistic characters in a realistic situation. Something different from many hysterical, exaggerating plots of this kind, where everybody is continually shouting in each other's face. A clever, delicate movie with some touch of humour. Luca Zingaretti is also remarkable as the villain.
