Storyline

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?

Not exactly uplifting
9 May 2009 | by (Global) – See all my reviews

About the life of Giulia, the mysterious character whose existence is slowly and painfully unravelled for us during the course of the movie.

This is not a feel-good movie. It is very moving, and raises thoughts about fidelity, trust, and what a person really needs in their life to be able to continue to live. I came away from the cinema not knowing what to think or feel. Actually, I do know how I felt - depressed. This film is very well made and very emotive. Don't expect to sit through it without being surprised and shocked and occasionally confused by the turn of events. It is a beautiful examination of the life of Giulia, and even if what we see isn't uplifting, it is interesting.

I recommend this movie for when you are in the mood for some thinking material. Not for a light night's entertainment and not for children.
