Storyline

Forty year-old Bruno Ledeux, seen sitting across from the doctor, gives the impression of a man who is no longer young but not yet old.Condemned to remain nothing more than a son, he begins his downward slide, as if a fog had shut him in a cage from which there is no escape. Bruno can never have children .He says nothing about this diagnosis to Anne, his beloved wife. Nor does he tell her about a large debt he has taken out. It is as if Bruno were a man without any qualities or talents. A mediocre man who has lost all pride. Though now everything appears hazy in his memory. Like a river that flows peacefully, showing no signs of the hidden currents at work below. But at times those currents can return to the surface. Without warning. Written by lament

The second film
20 October 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I approached the second Paolo Franchi film " Nessuna qualità agli eroi" ( I like not conventional titles) with biased attitudes and I had to change my mind since the firsts shots… It is a masterful job, dense, consistent with what was already present in the first work. The director enacts the relationship between father and son with an original dramatic tension, inspired to Dostoevskij, Camus, Musil. It is a noir, where hate and love, ambivalence and sincerity, guilt and punishment, or the complexity of psichic life, corrode from the inside the backbone of the film genre. Human relations, thank to a photography that enhances lights and shadows and sometimes resolves in a dazzling white so mysterious, take a place in a concrete way ( the core of the plot is a murder), yet remain suspended between dream and reality, freedom and claustrophobia, anxiety and abandonment. The impeccabile choice of environment, the artistic direction of actors, the formal rigor, the musical design give the film a European label, perhaps for this reason in Italy someone did not understand it and misjudged
