Excellent cast and acting, but parts of the story seemed contrived and not always making sense.

O enredo mostra uma outra forma de passar pelo luto. Filme suave e simples, quase delicado.

When a rich businessman's wife suddenly dies in an accident, his despair is so deep he is unable to maintain any aspect of his life except for the deep, loving support of his daughter. Every day, instead of going to the office, he takes the little girl to school, then spends the day sitting in the park across the street, waiting for her day to end so he can take her to gymnastics class, then home. He wishes she would come to her classroom window and look down at him. Executives from his office come to the park to talk, to conspire about a merger, one comes to offer him the CEO job. He has no interest. He is in the world of the park and his daughter and the people who pass through the park every day. And just this, no plot, no action, this is enough to make a great movie. Only Europeans have the sophistication to see the power in the smallest detail and translate it to film. In the US we are cheated from seeing pictures like this of our own by a film making system that thinks only 18 year old boys buy tickets. Because in the US we forgot long ago that film is an art, not a get rich quick scheme. These European stars can really act. They don't make Jennifer Aniston movies. Can somebody get rid of her, by the way? Put her under house arrest with no cameras?

Una pelicula "potente", con cierta elegancia y un buen arranque.
"Forrest Gump" minimalista.
Sin embargo, los secundarios, verdaderos protagonistas aqui, solo estan trazados. En mi impresion falta darles mas profundidad...
Con todo, el filme es de lo mas interesante de Italia en 2008...

slow and moving but doesn't really go anywhere in this tale of a father & daughter dealing with the death of his wife/mother.

A sweet story of a man coping with the death of his wife and raising his daughter alone.

A story about loss buried deep inside a story about lives where one story is told and many just glimpsed. The pace was fascinating... slow but entrancing, leaving you calm and thoughtful at the end.

This movie is subtle and stomach-punching at the same time. Great acting and plot, everything great with the exception of the sex scenes, very silly!

I thought this movie was very well done, much as the title indicates it's a very quiet film. The haunting and serene soundtrack perfectly underscores the emotions of the film. Great performances, a sweet, touching film that aptly deals with the issues of loss, relationships, family and life as a whole.

A quiet character study regarding a man dealing with the accidental death of his wife, leaving him to care for their ten year old daughter. Facing uncertainties at work and seemingly unable to process his loss, Pietro (Nanni Moretti) daily waits for his daughter in the park across from her school. He attracts the notice of several other people who frequent the park and receives visits from colleagues, friends, and relatives. His brother, Carlo (Alessandro Gassman), and crazy sister-in-law, Marta (Valeria Golino), check in with him from time to time to express their concerns and to try to induce him into a more normal routine, to no avail. The interaction between the father and daughter feels quite natural and provides a handle with which to understand their grief process. There are lighter moments to relieve the gloom, and the bright daily scenes also help to mask what otherwise could have been maudlin. One sex scene toward the end detracted from the overall tone of the film. It seemed out of place and completely unnecessary. This viewer has no problem with scenes of this nature as long as they flow naturally from the story. This one was too jarring and gratuitous.

¿Patrocinada por BMW? Hay demasiados elementos decorativos forzados pero la historia es original y resulta.
