Storyline

On the morning of their 20th wedding anniversary, Teresa's husband Sam goes for a run and keeps on running. Teresa carries on with the dinner celebrations figuring he'll show up eventually. As the evening unfolds we realize Sam ran away a year ago and Teresa's tenacity is holding onto his return. Their teenage son, Nicky, gives the party a bit of magic as he spikes the food with some hallucinogenics causing a wide variety of effects on the dinner guests. After a lot of laughter, tears and awkward embraces, Teresa realizes the truth about Sam's departure and what it means to say I Love You. Written by Trezzi, Maurizio

A charming and delightful indie gem
18 January 2015 | by vdetour-216-431582See all my reviews

The Anniversary is everything we hope for in an indie film: authentic humanity, a brilliant script with highly original characters, great music and a totally original story of heartbreak and longing.

And it has none of the things we fear in an indie film: the sound is exceptionally good for example. And the characters are quirky without stretching for the quirk.

It's so refreshing when a film has none of the clichés of Hollywood, but also avoids the clichés of independent films: it's simply a deeply human tale of love and loss and hope. The script is brilliant and fresh and real, the actors strong, and The Anniversary also has the most remarkable ending.

I'm going to have to see The Anniversary again, it's that good. What a fine gem of a film.
