In post-WWII Naples, an enigmatic woman and her husband move in near a cynical widower, changing his life forever.


  • Sharp, fascinating characters (even the kids) (+1)
  • Big plot twist in the middle (+1)
  • Dark, emotional story (+1/2)
  • Met (high) expectations (+1)

This is one of those movies I really like because it’s not relying on guns, explosions, blood and/or Hollywoodian chase scenes. It manages to pull you in with intelligent characters that go through deep personal trauma and emerge on the other side as different people. Not for everybody.

Score: 8.5/10
