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.

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

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

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.

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 (Margherita Buy) and Michele (Antonio Albanese) have a problem: They're a married couple in a middlebrow arthouse movie.

Deliberately paced and naturally limned by all, the family's ups and downs make for a satisfying journey.
