Guido writes novels and short stories; he's detached, diffident. When his wife and teenage daughter move, he stays behind to write. He takes swimming lessons; his teacher is Giulia, somber, perhaps melancholy. They talk from time to time; he invites her out, and she says she doesn't go out at night. We see Guido's stories dramatized - unhappy characters in search of something. Guido helps his daughter navigate a first crush; he disengages from a campaign to win a literary prize. His wife challenges him to reconnect with her. Instead, he focuses on Giulia: drawing her out, learning of her past. Then he intervenes. Can a novelist write reality? Written by
Giulia is a very intriguing character. So you can see why our main protagonist kinda is tempted by her. While reluctantly at first (it's his offspring that will lead him to the swimming pool), he wants to discover more about that woman. But our main guy has more than the obvious reason to follow her.
As a writer he does have some weird dreams (adding another level to the movie). But it might also be the downfall of the movie. Trying to add as many layers to it as possible, it kinda is overloaded a bit. But all with good intentions of course. And while the main story unravels, there is this other sub-stories that are worth a stand-alone movie too. All in all, not a bad drama, but not great either.
