This movie goes well with our current economic downfall. It serves as a reminder that losing a job can happen to anybody, and life can change over night. In the end we have to face the reality, pick up the pieces, and move on with our life. However, It's not nearly as engaging or dramatic as other Italian flicks....it's very quiet, and not much happens.

a relevant film for these turbulent economic times. a story of loss, identity crises, reinvention, and core values. the final shots of the uncovered fresco leave the viewer hopeful.

A bit depressing, this tale tells the story of a couple dealing with job loss and shattered dreams. Michele (Antonio Albanese) is forced out of the business he started with his friend and partner. He delays telling his wife, Elsa (Margherita Buy), for two months, until after her graduation with an art degree. The film details the downward spiral as Michele loses hope and ambition and finally succumbs to what appears to be depression. Meanwhile, Elsa must put her hopes and dreams on hold as the major responsibility for the family finances falls to her. Not all is darkness, as a glimmer of hope begins to return by the end, but there is darkness aplenty here. The acting is superb. The scenery and camera work are nothing short of brilliant. The emotions are raw and palpable. The story will hit close to home for anyone facing an uncertain future in the present economy.

[font=Century Gothic]"Days and Clouds" starts with Elsa(Margherita Buy) graduating from college when she passes her oral exams. As bad as the hangover and glass shard in her foot are the morning after, they cannot begin to compare to the agony of finding out that her husband Michele(Antonio Albanese) lost his job months ago at the company he helped found, lying to her in the bargain.(He did not tell their grown daughter, Alice(Alba Rohrwacher), either and they do not plan on doing so.) Worse still, they are running out of money, forcing them to put their house on the market. In the meantime, Elsa stays on at her unpaid restoration job while Michele turns down a job as a production manager, feeling something better is right around the corner...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Days and Clouds" is a perceptive drama about the psychological effects which can be almost as bad as the financial effects of losing one's job. It is especially difficult for Michele and Elsa since they are middle-aged and it is harder for them to start over. As time goes on, pride becomes a luxury as they cannot be choosy about the the type of work offered. And in these circumstances Michele's lying becomes almost understandable but he still should have come clean with everybody.[/font]

A tad slow and uneventful, but has a big heart. "The Pursuit of Happyness" was a bit more emotionally charged and more filled with conflict than this film. Still, the idea of love conquering all resonates with the viewer long after the credits have rolled.

Brutally Honest, Intense and still Warm...

Pretty great film. Very interesting to see the the rapid decline of two people's lives.

Life is a struggle. Here is a very well told story of a couple in times of financial woes. Good acting and script sustain momentum from beginning to end. A descendant of the Italian realism movies.

Days and Clouds is a moving and engrossing examination of the rippling effects of sudden unemployment on an elegant middle class couple. The filmā(TM)s intelligence, sensitivity, beauty and performances rivet us as we follow the unexpected and sometimes humorous efforts to adapt to the precarious situation. At the end, while we feel the sadness of the upheaval and the uncertainty of the future, the depth of love and growing strength of character that we have observed leave us with a sense of optimism.

This movie goes to show you that without communication you have nothing.And also that everything you have worked for can slip away in an instant if you don't work at it.This man should have confided in his wife way before they got into this much trouble.
