Distinguished by an outstanding cast in top form, the stylish and involving new drama from award-winning writer/director Daniele Luchetti (La Nostra Vita, My Brother is an Only Child) charts the lives of a middle-class Italian family across three decades.

Naples, early 1980s. The once-happy union between Aldo (Luigi Lo Cascio) and his wife Vanda (a superb Alba Rohrwacher) is ruptured one evening when Aldo admits, unprompted, that he has been unfaithful. Equally hurt and bewildered, Vanda attempts to hide her pain from the couple’s two school-age kids.

30 years later, Aldo (Silvio Orlando) and Vanda (Laura Morante) are still together, but their relationships with each other and grownup children Anna (Giovanni Mezzogiorno) and Sandro (Adriano Giannini) continue to be defined by what happened all those years ago.

The first Italian film in over a decade to open the Venice Film Festival, Luchetti’s intricate and affecting film effortlessly shifts back and forth through the years, wresting new perspectives on age-old relationship conflicts. It’s emotional, indelible cinema.

“Alba Rohrwacher and Luigi Lo Cascio are exceptionally strong.” The Times

“A European cousin to Marriage Story.” The Guardian

“Exceptional. A vivid marriage story with Ferrante flavour.” The Times
 
“A finely crafted, quality drama. Luchetti’s grasp of relationships is utterly authentic and dives deep into the cruel dynamics of a couple at the breaking point.” The Hollywood Reporter
