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.

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.

Days and Clouds is a moving and engrossing examination of the rippling effects of sudden unemployment on an elegant middle class couple. The film‚(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.

Yes, bad breaks can happen, but pride can only go far when it becomes stupidity: on one side you have Michele, who cannot accept failing himself and the rest of his family, on the other you have Elsa, who won't surrender. It's no wonder that women are stronger.

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.

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.

Shows how money(or the lack thereof) can expose holes in anyone's relationship.

This is a story of a marriage that goes through many hardships and the roles in the marriage change. It shows how hard it can be to be the main provider for a family, and how it can be even harder to lose that role. The main actors did a great job of showing a loving, but filled with anger relationship.

Entretenida pelicula italiana, con guión y actuaciones muy interesantes, y con un tema que nos toca a los argentinos muy de cerca... empezar de nuevo en la mitad de la vida.

An excellent, moving film with terrific lead performances by Albanese and Buy. Soldini does an excellent job at focusing on and examining how a couple meets with a very difficult problem and how each goes about coping with that problem. The screenplay rings true and genuine and the chemistry between the two leads is natural and arresting. Albanese is especially effective, showing a wide range here. You feel tremendous empathy for him, but also want to shake some sense into him later in the film. A wonderful study...sad, conflicting and eye-opening.

La pérdida de trabajo del padre de familia y las repercusiones en la relación familiar, marital y social. Tema ya abarcado en La Corporación y El Empleo del Tiempo.

Aqu√≠, al igual que en aquella, se plantea la pauta de reinsertarse laboralmente dentro de un sistema que cuenta con requisitos, impone edades limites, cualidades, donde una persona mayor a 40 a√Īos ya no tiene cabida a desarrollarse como un profesional.

Michele (Antonio Albanese) es socio en una empresa, pero una nueva incorporación a la sociedad -con ideas distintas a las conservadoras, y más prolíficas- lo dejó fuera de contrato. Diferencias de las cuales el personaje, al ver el cambio en su forma de vida y el advenimiento en deudas imposibles de pagar, perturban la tranquilidad de una familia de clase media que vivía bajo los mejores términos en cordialidad.

Elsa (Margherita Buy, vista en Manuale d‚??Amore), su mujer, es una restauradora ‚??sin ingreso econ√≥mico‚??, que deber√° modificar su quehacer para poder seguir adelante: mantener a la familia, ante la eventual depresi√≥n que cae sobre Michele.

La relación marital se va desbaratando y el film va circulando por cuantiosos obstáculos y experiencias que pueden ocurrir al encontrarse con tal dilema.

Silvio Soldini (director italiano de Pan y Tulipanes) como el titulo lo demuestra, expone las buenas y las malas, el sufrimiento y la felicidad. Muy abarcativo sobre el tema a desarrollar, ahonda en las cuestiones que acercar√°n y alejar√°n a lo que era una flamante pareja.

Margherita Buy y Antonio Albanese se lucen como los protagonistas principales, mantienen en pie un film que si bien tiene altibajos es correcto, sin pretensiones.
