Adapting her own novel, director Cristina Comencini (the Oscar-nominated Don’t Tell) tackles a taboo subject in contemporary culture: a young mother whose feelings for her two-year-old son are often less than loving. Marina (Italian TV star Claudia Pandolfi) and Marco are vacationing in a remote Alpine village, awaiting the arrival of Marco’s father. Going through the “terrible two” phase, Marco is a constantly crying handful and the frazzled Marina—kept at a distance by the locals—has only her taciturn neighbor Manfred (Filippo Timi, Mussolini in Marco Bellocchio’s Vincere), burdened with his own issues involving mothers, namely the ex-wife and mother of his absent children, as company. Marco is hurt one night and it is unclear whether it is an accident or a desperate act by Marina; Manfred feels compelled to get involved and a bond begins to develop…. The Alps serve as a spectacular backdrop for a drama exploring the boundaries of mother-child love while painting an intimate picture of a troubled young woman. Together, Comencini and Pandolfi have crafted a memorable look at an unexamined issue.
