This directing debut garnered a number of European awards in 2006 but is only now reaching our shores. A father struggles to bring up his daughter and son in a cramped Rome apartment. Seen from the plaintive point of view of the son (a scintillating performance by 11-year-old Alessandro Morace), the film charts the effects of the mother’s surprise return, the volatility of the father and the delicate changes the boy is undergoing.

Affecting and quite brilliantly acted...a heartfelt film that lingers in the mind.
