Amelio no transa y muestra en cruda realidad sin dejar de enfocar, con tomas alargadas que incluso se quedan pegadas en sensaciones. El tema no deja de ser como la pelicula un padre que abandonó a su hijo y que ahora vuelve a hacerse cargo... No es de lagrimones, ni melosa, ni nada e so, es como es...

linda,inspiradora y triste...un jovencito discapacitado con un padre no conocido que luego se derrite de amor por el..triste lo digo pero tierna y verdadera..retrata una realidad lamentable de la forma mas tierna posible..un amor precioso de un padre a su hijo..acompañada de actuaciones buenas sobretodo de el niño quien a pesar de todo..lo hizo y lo hizo bien

I like the description someone gave, 'Raw". It was a great movie, albeit kinda slow. But the Development of the character over time was so great to see. And that kid was amazing-great courage.

A realistic story about a physically handicapped boy & his father who had abandoned him since his birth. Andrea Rossi is great. Charlotte Rampling is always mystic but convincing for each of her characters.

utterly moving ,solid character acting,their is a wafting poignacy that works despite the corny plot line.. My first Gianni Amello movie . he is a sensitive and expressionistic film director

It's worth a watch but definitely not a film for everyone.

I think there's some impressive character work going on here, but sometimes it's a bit too explicit to be totally affecting.

Le chiavi di casa is more akin (in theme and tone) to Il ladro di bambini than to any of his later work. The film depicts a few days in the life of Gianni, a young father who has just been reunited with the disabled son he abandoned 15 years previously. Rossi Stuart's performance is wonderfully balanced, often portraying both guilt and love simultaneously. The growing relationship between father and son is genuinely heart-warming.

The film gives the power to live.

Didn't expect this one to be so raw. It was slow and tedious but the ending was touching. The growing affection btw father and son was sweet and sad at the same time.

A wonderful movie. Kim Rossi Stuart's and Andrea Rossi's great interpretations of a father and a son lost between the past and the future, and their affection for each other which keeps growing little by little.

Such a moving film!
This documentary like drama allows us to watch a man grow closer to the handicapped son he abandoned as an infant, trying to make up for lost time and welding their very different lives together.

Too close to home, because they did it right. Andrea Rossi is beautiful.

it was a really realistic movie, so much so it felt like i was just outside observing a documentary of someone's life. it was odd at times to me the relationship between the boy and the son but i suppose that it was a cultural thing. i def recommend it overall. it was an interesting movie to see

Exceedingly charming and poignant.

Almost too realistic to watch at times, this is a heartbreaking look at one man's attempt to atone for his mistakes. Kim Rossi Stuart is a wonder to watch in this, and so is Andrea Rossi as his severly handicapped son, Paolo. Truthful to a fault, the depiction of life with a handicapped child is something to watch with one hand over your heart.
