I didn't know I knew how to cry in Italian.
I wanted to watch this movie because it had won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, but also the premise interested me. However, the movie wasn't what I expected and although it wasn't bad, it was rather slow and not as emotional as I hoped. Still the performances were very good.

It is mysterious how such a quiet, low drama film was able to reduce me to tears so powerfully, not once but several times. I suspect it may be that case of a film that works better in another language, that it may have felt more emotionally manipulative in English, but maybe not. It opens a painfully honest window on the agony of loss and should be seen.
my first movie of Ninni Morretti. I felt big sorrow throughout the movie.
and we could see how they live after death.
A rather predictable but sincere approach on showing a family's grievance.
This definitely becomes a lot more interesting once Andrea dies in an diving accident. Before that, I wasn't that into it, but the portrayal of the family's grief over their terrible loss is done really well.
Winner of the Palme d'Or, The Son's Room is a film about how grief works in a family who has had an unexpected tragedy. Surprisingly unsentimental, I don't know if it was on purpose but I liked that about the film. I would have enjoyed it more without the music.
A family drama that touches your heart and soul.
Incredibly moving, powerful film.
Highly regarded, though I'm not totally sure why. It's ok.
