Giovanni, an Italian psychoanalyst who has to listen to the rambles of his patients every day, struggles to come to terms with the death of his young son in a diving accident.
What Tierna thinks: “I’d definitely recommend watching this; we had put it off a few times as you really need to concentrate more on subtitled films (Lazy? Perhaps!) but I’m glad we finally found time. The acting is very believable in this and the family interact naturally with each other, making the son’s death more poignant. The letter that arrives after the death of Andrea seems to bring some sort of comfort to the family and it ultimately has an uplifting ending. A well deserved eight out of ten from me.”
What Tom thinks: “So its been a while since our last film and our first of 2012 was… alright. It has to be said it’s fairly depressing and, particularly given that its subtitled, not a film I’d be particularly wanting to watch again. But a fairly good film with a believable reaction from the family after Andrea’s death which shows how difficult death can be. A six from me.”
