Movie Info

Director Francesca Comencini teams with screenwriter Franco Bernini to explore the manner in which money dictates the lives of people in Milan at the dawn of the 21st century in this drama that premiered at the 2006 Rome Film Fest. Ugo (Luca Zingaretti) is a crooked banker with a shifty hand for finances. Rita (Valeria Golino) is a by-the-books finance officer determined to bring Ugo to justice. In a city where money, or lack thereof, seems to be the motivating factor in the lives of all individuals no matter what side of the law they fall on, the confrontations and contradictions in their lives all come together to offer a revealing look at the value placed on the almighty euro.

Critic Reviews for A casa nostra

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Following her more on-target I Like to Work (Mobbing) about workplace harassment, and her delicate Italo Svevo adaptation My Father's Words, this film comes as something of a let-down from the wide-ranging director.

Top Critic

The intersecting stories are connected by themes of money, power, corruption and the absence of love, though more often than not they play in full-on melodrama mode and are used simply to wring compassion from the audience in the way soap operas do.
