Those Happy Years
Anni felici
Italy, 2013, 106 Minute Running Time
Topics: Drama, Women
Program: World Cinema Now
Language: Italian English Sub-Titles

Genuine affection is paired with trenchant reflection in Daniele Luchetti’s subtle, sharply perceptive and partially autobiographical look back at (what could be) his parents’ marriage. Like Luchetti’s father, Guido Marchetti (Kim Rossi Stuart) is an avant-garde artist, here an egotistical painter, determined to succeed. Married to the lovely Serena (Micaela Ramazzotti) and father to two boys, Guido enjoys the perks that his work with frequently nude models affords while expecting his wife to adhere to more traditional codes. But it’s the 1970s, and when Serena is invited on a feminist retreat, she starts to rethink her life…

“A delicate, nuanced film that is unexpectedly moving in its portrait of a young Italian family living through the turbulent, freedom-loving '70s, Those Happy Years uses ironic distance to talk about very intimate things… It captures the excruciating honesty and soul-searching of the years of feminism and self-liberation, a time that now seems far, far away… Italian stars Kim Rossi Stuart and Micaela Ramazzotti [are] both at the top of their game here.”
