Audience Reviews for Days and Clouds

  • Apr 24, 2011
    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 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.

    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.
