Days and Clouds serves as a primer in coping with depression, financial and/or personal. But it is stirring, serious and, ultimately, mercifully optimistic cinema.

Elsa and Michele's story is such a deft study of what can make a relationship go to pieces that it's a satisfying watch in spite of all the bitterness.

The movie's success in Italy is partly a matter of frustration: Women need their men to grow up.

a thought-provoking and powerful story that will appeal to mature audiences and those who appreciate fine filmmaking...that is worth laying out 12 bucks to see it at the theater.

Soldini gets at all the nuances of a marriage of many years in crisis, and, without a typical 'happy' ending where all worries are neatly resolved, wraps with hopeful poetry...

Little is surprising about either characters' behavior, but there isn't a single anguished expression that plays forced or false.

This is a portrait of nerve-racking economic times, and it cuts close to the bone in detailing how a marriage suffers when its financial underpinnings are suddenly knocked away.

A brave film simply for daring to portray a nightmare lurking in the minds of middle-aged workers, people who might fear a film that addresses their insecurities this bluntly.

Money makes the world go round in Days and Clouds, a darling relationship drama that probes our collective fears about financial instability with an almost profoundly empathetic detachment.

While the context, in the U.S. as well as its native country, lends Days And Clouds added resonance, Soldini's main interest is in the politics of marriage.
