Movie Summary

Director:
Nanni Moretti

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. But when one son drowns in a diving accident, the family's tight emotional bond is put to the test -- especially for Giovanni, who tortures himself with second-guesses regarding what he might have done to prevent his son's death.

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.
