Distinguished by an outstanding cast in top form, this stylish and involving new drama from
award-winning writer/director Daniele Luchetti, charts the lives of a middle-class Italian family
across three decades.

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.

Thirty years later, Aldo and Vanda are still together, but their relationships with each other and grown up children, Anna and Sandro, continue to be defined by what happened all those years

It is the first Italian film in over a decade to open the Venice
Film Festival.
- Paolo Rotondo
