Caos Calmo (Quiet Chaos) Reviews

October 7, 2015
There are moments of truth in "Quiet Chaos," such as when Pietro resorts to recreational drugs and rough sex, but those moments are far too few and much too far between.

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

Grief has rarely felt quite so empty as it does in Quiet Chaos.

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.

Quiet Chaos jerkily shifts tones, from oddly comic ... to blunt. And by blunt I mean an indiscreet, in-your-face sex scene that turns the viewer from observer to pervy voyeur.

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.

It's watchable and fluent, but there is something narcissistic and conceited in Moretti's performance.

For a far superior meditation on bereavement, better to turn to Moretti's portrayal of a grieving father in 2002's The Son's Room.
