Storyline

The film, a nostalgic fantasy documentary, depicts in six episodes a family story in Bobbio between 1999 and 2008. We discover the 5 years-old Elena being brought up by her aunts (Marco Bellocchio's sisters) because her mother Sara is trying to succeed as an actress in Milan. His uncle Giorgio has a difficult relationship with his sister and judges her for not taking care of her daughter. But as soon as Sara can afford it, she offers to take Elena with her, leaving the village and her aunts, perhaps for ever... while Giorgio, up to his eyeballs in debt, takes refuge in Bobbio. His sister will help him and sell a house. Written by lletaif

The thickness of the opaque
4 April 2011 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Through grainy images, rarely vivid, winds up the story suspended between reality and aspirations, including guilt and neurotic acts of rebellion. Bellocchio seems to be the refusal of the fate that inevitably is well marked. There is a stage that includes the unconscious, the present, but the vanity of the reason for pulling them back, put him to rest. Never completely, though: the torment of life haunts everyone. Difficult to extricate themselves, bear the losses that do not make up their illusions. It would take a director to bring some 'order of life, suggesting some way out. In fact, it is the administrator of the family in the beautiful metaphor of man in a tuxedo that elegantly leaves the stage - and life - drowning in the waters of the pristine river of Bobbio, to warn that before the mystery of time is the life, man is granted only the dignity of courage, coming back just to water where life had begun. A film in some ways poignant, poetic, which tells the malaise of life through psychic impressions of the characters from within, in the course of the unstoppable memory over time which is the substance extremely fragile existence.
