Storyline

Pietro is a successful businessman with a wife and a daughter. One day he helps his brother save two women from drowning at the beach. When he returns home he finds that his wife has died. Now Pietro has to take care of his daughter, Claudia. When he drives her to school soon after, he decides to wait for her all day in front of the school, and soon that's what he does every day. He eats at the nearby café, gets to know the people who come by and follows from afar the fusion developments at work. Pietro's brother expects him to snap out of it, but who will snap first?

Quiet Chaos
14 August 2010 | by (Cairo, Egypt) – See all my reviews

Even only credited as the leading actor and co-writer of the film, actually I think Nanny Moretti is actually the man behind the curtain. Like THE SON'S ROOM (2001), instead of losing the son, this time it's the wife's turn, and another prominent change is that in CAOS CALMO the emotional level is subtler, submerged underneath the appearance. Which in one hand gives some mundane breath, in the other hand is on the verge of being boring.

At the beginning of the film, Nanny and his brother save two women (one is Isabella) and later find out that his wife has died of an accident, the coincidence conflicts between life and death is profound and utter, which gives a ridiculously authentic feeling.

The sex scene between Nanny and Isabella is a little bit awkward as all of us were in dead silence while watching it, Obviously Nanny is not Brad Pitt (maybe he is a little bit older now), or let's say Sam Washington (he is a hottie, right?), thus I have to say it is not pretty and rather long, I highly doubt the necessity of its existence, does it signify a way of atonement for his wife?

P.S. Roman Polanski's cameo is a surprise, the content of what they are talking inside the car is undistinguished, apparently it helps to begin a new journey for the miserable (maybe not) man and his lovely daughter.
