The Son's Room 

Director: Nanni Moretti Country: Fr/It
Cert: 15 Year: 2001 Length: 99 mins Language: Italian with English subtitles


When an unexpected death occurs in a family, we follow its impact on those bereaved. Denial, guilt, sorrow, anger, a picking up of the pieces and grudging acceptance are all laid before us in a way that draws us in with the grieving family. It is the effect that the death has on everyday activities that is the most profound and - simply because they are everyday - has the most impact on us.

This is razor-sharp, quality drama about our fragile existence, yet somehow energizing and almost therapeutic. Sad it may be but it is never mawkish or self-pitying. A film that is honest and open - and one that demands to be seen.
