During a sticky patch in her marriage forty-something Anna spends a summer holiday with her friends Verena and George at their Tuscan villa but hangs out with the couple's teen-aged children and their cousin Oakley, with whom she goes skinny-dipping and sight-seeing. When the youngsters prang a borrowed car and Anna tells George how it happened, causing a huge scene with his elder son, the kids turn against her. Observing family life as an outsider - unrelated - Anna ultimately comes to be grateful for what she has got. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Tangible, contemplative, efficiently understated..."
1 February 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

English screenwriter and director Joanna Hogg's feature film debut which she wrote, premiered at the 51st London Film Festival in 2007, was shot on location in Monteroni d'Arbia and Siena in Italy and is a United Kingdom production which was produced by producer Barbara Stone. It tells the story about a woman named Anna who goes to a holiday resort in Italy. Some of her old friends are staying there with their children and after Anna has gotten settled, her friend named Brianna begins noticing that something is going on with Anna.

Distinctly and precisely directed by British filmmaker Joanna Hogg, this finely paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the main character's point of view, draws a perceptive portrayal of a woman's relationship with her friends and a young man named Oakley. While notable for it's naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions, sterling cinematography by cinematographer Oliver Curtis, production design by production designer Stéphane Collonge, fine editing by Danish film editor Helle Le Fevre and use of sound, colors and light, this character-driven and dialog-driven story depicts an incisively internal and heartrending study of character.

This inventive, atypical and at times humorous drama from the late 2000s which examines themes like generational differences, interpersonal relations and belongingness, is impelled and reinforced by it's fleeting narrative structure, subtle character development and continuity, silent moments, natural dialog, interesting characters, underlying emotional substance, distinct aura and the authentic acting performances by actress Kathryn Worth, English actor Tom Hiddleston in his debut feature film role and Zimbabwean-English actress and director Mary Roscoe. A tangible, contemplative, efficiently understated and acutely framed character piece which reminiscences some of the great masters of cinema.
