    An inspiring heartfelt tale of a man who learns how to abandon his past and appreciate the beauty of his now. A masterpiece in its own right. Nothing short of what you'd expect from the brain behind Il Y'a Longtemps Que Je T'aime. Phillippe Claudel is a genius.

    Can you still love after the love of your life is no longer around? Great music.

    It's lovely. I can't describe this movie with any other word: it's lovely. It's not a masterpiece, however it is a funny, delighful and of course, lovely piece of art.

    Very good movie. one of my favorite foreign language films. I found it under romance in netflix but would easily fit in the comedy genre whether intentionally or not.

    Exceptional! Very moving and very funny at the same time. Great acting too: the best of France and Italy. If you want to laugh and cry a little, this is it!

    Charming French-Italian flick, light-heartedly dramatic.

    "Alessandro teaches musicology at the university of Strasbourg. He is also a volunteer reader in hospitals. He shares his apartment with his daughter, 15-year-old Irina, and his anarchist brother Luigi. Life is not always rosy at Alessandro's for three main reasons : he is a widower and has never really recovered from the death of his young wife ; his brother is some kind of parasite who refuses to sell his paintings to capitalist speculators and so to contribute to the cost of the household ; Irina, whom he has raised alone since she was five months old and always felt close to, is rapidly changing from little girl to teenager and wishes to be treated as such. One day, Florence, a beautiful young woman, gets into Alessandro's life. Will he eventually take his chances with her? And will he manage to stop stifling Irina? And will he finally get on with Luigi?" - well the movie has some funny moments but overall is passable
