It plays out more like a 12-step program than a human drama.

It's a 110-minute-long ending with no end in sight.

... or all the emotional integrity and observational exactness, it's more social study than character drama.

What seemed at first a provocative study of a family tragedy becomes a two-hour immersion into minutiea until you start thinking that the exits are where the action is.

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.

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.

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.

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

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...
