Giovanni is a successful psychoanalyst who has to put up with the seemingly endless string of trivial details his patients ramble on about. Yet his family provides a loving and steadfast foundation for his life that can even survive a problem like their son, Andrea, being accused of stealing a rare fossil in school. That foundation is profoundly rocked when Andrea dies in a scuba diving accident. Although the usual arrangements run smoothly, the emotional harm is profound. Giovanni begins to obsessively dwell on the missed chances he had with his son that might have saved his life, even blaming his patients. In addition, his wife is inconsolable and his daughter is becoming anti social in their loss. In the midst of this turmoil, a secret of their son's life is revealed that provides healing in a way they never anticipated.Written by

As of 2015, this is the last film directed by Nanni Moretti where he also plays the main character. All his subsequent appearances in his own films are either supporting roles or extended cameos. See more »
its touch is obvious in each scene. but the theme changes the resonance of a well known style. not for dramatic impact but for solution to define it in right manner. for bitter beauty. for the fight of a family to understand. and accept. for the second chance. and for the joy of new perception of life small things. the irony of director is replaced by touching message. about the silhouette of Job looking answer to the pain. and using the question to define himself. like each film by Nanni Moretti,"La stanza del figlio" is a personal confession. and only the manner to define its terms transforms it in universal. because this is the splendid detail who transforms it in a useful story. the realism of testimony about death and hope. about joy and sorrow.about reconstruction of same life in different profound manner.
