The anticipated new film from Daniele Luchetti (My Brother is an Only Child) is a touching and insightful drama about a narcissistic artist in the 70s who is battling to establish himself in the subjective world of art while trying to hold his family together.
A proud Guido (Kim Rossi Stuart, Romanzo criminale), spends extended periods in his studio sculpting and seducing attractive young models, arousing the jealousy and anger of his devoted wife, Serena (the ravishing Micaela Ramazzotti, The First Beautiful Thing), who is rapidly tiring of her husband's transgressions. But Guido’s pride is crushed when his exhibition at an important art show in Milan fails. Immediately following this, Serena rebels against his infidelities, and takes a holiday alone with the children, forcing Guido to confront all the things that had limited his art and his love.
In this contemporary look at a marriage in crisis, Luchetti elicits brilliant performances from two of Italy's best-known and beloved actors and effortlessly creates a story rich with sincere emotion and empathy.
