Quiet Chaos is a 2008 Italian romantic drama based on a novel by Sandro Veronesi and directed by Antonello Grimaldi. Pietro (Nanni Moretti) is a tough film executive with a beautiful wife, Lara (Ester Cavallari), and an adorable 10-year-old daughter, Claudia (Blu Yoshimi). While he is relaxing at the beach one day, he and his brother Carlo (Alessandro Gassman) end up saving two women from drowning. When Pietro returns to his house, he finds that positive karma from his good deed has not followed him. Instead, he learns that his wife has just tragically fallen to her death at the same time that he was rescuing the women. Pietro must now re-examine his entire life as he struggles to cope with his loss and act as a single parent to his daughter at the same time. Quiet Chaos explores the nature of loss, grief, and healing in a realistic and touching way.
