Days and Clouds (Giorni e nuvole) is a 2008 Italian drama, from Warner Bros Studios. The movie centers on a successful married couple whose lives crumble when the husband's partners cold-heartedly oust him from his job in the company he founded. The husband, Michele (Antonio Albanese), lets his wife, Elsa (Margherita Buy), believe everything is fine as she finishes her degree in art history, then he breaks the news to her and sends her life into a tailspin. Elsa puts her burgeoning art career on hold and takes a secretarial job to make ends meet. Michele finds temporary jobs, one delivering parcels, which he quits after their grown daughter, Alice (Alba Rohrwacher), spots him and learns the truth. Later, he finds a job with some erstwhile co-workers from his former company but it is short-lived. The couple has to downsize and relinquish the trappings of their opulent lifestyle. They must face the challenges ahead, and see if they have a love that is strong enough to carry them through the difficulties. This film is not rated.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    A brave film simply for daring to portray a nightmare lurking in the minds of middle-aged workers, people who might fear a film that addresses their insecurities this bluntly.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    An intelligent adult drama that's especially relevant in these harsh economic times.

  • 70

    Washington Post

    Sometimes art imitates life; sometimes it is life. If the market gets any worse, Days and Clouds could kill realism outright.
