[Nanni] Moretti makes this 'study' in despair a naggingly neutral, at times borderline coy experience.

Moretti gives his usual excellent performance. But the script throws in too many other elements while it should be concentrating on the father-daughter relationship.

The film, while uneven -- sometimes too on the nose, sometimes anecdotal and diffuse -- is generally absorbing, thanks mostly to the quality of the acting.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Not even the momentary participation extraordinaire of a vertically challenged famous filmmaker self-exiled from the United States can save this phony pseudo-drama from its final collapse into a heap of inconsequence and male vanity.

A thoughtful portrait of the purgatory of grief that prefers small incidences and exchanges over grand gestures of sentiment and revelation. It's sad - but never cloying.

Nanni Moretti superbly carries family tragedy, infusing it with depth and humor.
