"In his new film, Calabrian director Gianni Amelio, tackles the bonds of family and the morass of emotions that emanates from them. At the heart of the story is Lorenzo, a seventy-ish self-centred man who becomes attached to an outwardly perfect family that represents something he could never find in his own children." (Cineuropa)
