Storyline

In the dysfunctional Italian middle-class family Ristuccia, the middle-aged executive Carlo has a stalled life without passion, bored in his work and having a monotonous life with his wife Giulia. Giulia is a frustrated and hysterical woman because she gave up of being an actress in her youth to dedicate to the family. Their needy son Paolo feels lost and rejected, trying to find who he is and flirting with a schoolmate. Their seventeen years old daughter Valentina is decided to work in a television show, and is fighting to have an audition. When Carlo meets his former sweetheart Alessia in a class reunion, they confess to each other that their marriages are in crisis and both feel passion arising again. Meanwhile Giulia is invited to an audition in a stage production and to participate of a play. Paolo tries to make friends using marijuana in his birthday party, and Valentina has sex with different guys trying to be a dancer of the famous TV show 'Ali Babbi'. Their relationships ...

Paolo Ristuccia: Tell me the truth Valentina, what do you think of me? What am I like from the outside?
Valentina Ristuccia: You know what I think about you.
Paolo Ristuccia: Tell me anyway.
Valentina Ristuccia: I think you're clueless and inexpressive, when you talk it sounds like you've got a rag in you mouth and people can't understand a f**k, you don't shower and you dress like a communist loser when the world goes in the opposite direction. This is what I think.
Paolo Ristuccia: Anything else?
Valentina Ristuccia: No, that's enough.

Spoiler alert! If you go to a movie to see action, special effects, and lots of sex and violence, this isn't the film for you. If you do like to see quality acting and stories about real life and relationships, this is for you. In fact, everyone in Carlo's family (his wife, his son and his daughter) are all looking for something more in life than what they have. Fabrizio Bentiviglio gives an excellent performance as the aloof Carlo, who wants to feel alive again. Laura Morante is also quite good at being the ultra-annoying housewife (Giulia) who does her best to push Carlo away without trying. Monica Bellucci is still beautiful at almost 40 years of age in this film. She plays the other woman (Alessia) who is a long lost love of Carlo's, and she's also married. Before the movie is over, you want to see Carlo and Alessia together, even though both of them have spouses and children to think about. All of the characters experience life-changing events that change them forever; some for the better, others not.

The casting is excellent in this film. Silvio Muccino plays Paolo, Carlo's son, who is tired of feeling like a loser and pining for a girl named Ilaria. It's scary how much Silvio looks like a younger version of Fabrizio. Nicoletta Romanoff plays Valentina, Carlo and Giulia's daughter. She wants to be a television star, and will do anything to get there.

It is a good movie with exceptional acting that leaves you with a bittersweet feeling in the end.
