Veteran Marco Bellocchio returns with an impeccably crafted, deeply felt adaptation of Massimo Gramellini”s autobiographical best-seller. Massimo (Valerio Mastandrea) is a successful journalist haunted by the loss of his beloved mother when he was just nine years-old. Finally confronting the secrets and lies of the past offers him the only possibility of finding peace of mind. Journeying from Massimo’s 1960s childhood to his life in modern Turin, the film features a standout performance from Mastandrea and builds into a touching portrait of the unbreakable bond between mother and son.
