Nanni Moretti plays Pietro, a TV executive who discovers his wife dead in a freak accident. Puzzled why grief does not kick in, he stops going to work, and installs himself on a park bench opposite his daughter’s school. While waiting to collect her each day he meets with both people in the park, and with his family and work colleagues. Moretti hives a complex performance as a decent man suddenly thrown into crisis, ably supported by the rest of the magnificent cast. Both funny and moving, this subtle and tender film was a huge and deserved hit in Italy.
