A multi-tiered morality tale that poses complex questions, this latest work from Palme d'Or-winning director, writer, and actor Nanni Moretti is a network narrative in which every transgression holds the potential for transcendence. The ne'er-do-well son of two esteemed judges (Moretti and Margherita Buy), Andréa (Alessandro Sperduti) kills a pedestrian while swerving to avoid hitting Monica (Alba Rohrwacher), who is going into labor and is desperate for a ride to the hospital. Andréa winds up crashing his car into the living room of Lucio (Riccardo Scamarcio), who will soon face his own legal ordeal when his young daughter goes missing while being cared for by an elderly neighbor. Each of these characters inhabits the same Rome apartment complex. Years pass, paths cross, plots thicken, and one generation succeeds another. Only gradually, after much turmoil and hard-won forgiveness, will long-elusive truths finally come to light.—Toronto International Film Festival
