R
Giovanni, a successful psychoanalyst (Nanni Moretti, who also directs), enjoys a peaceful, happy life with his loving wife (Laura Morante) and their two bright teenagers.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    The movie's rejection of even a tinge of melodrama lends it a special integrity.

  • 60

    Variety David Rooney

    While devotees expecting Moretti's wry worldview may feel shortchanged, others will find this a profoundly moving experience, giving it fuel to cross borders into the arthouse niche.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    A measured, decorous, at times pat film that manages to be quietly moving because it touches on something real.
