Days and Clouds

Elsa's (Margherita Buy) joy of graduating with her PhD is cut short when she discovers that her husband, Michele (Antonio Albanese), has been kicked out of his business. As he struggles to find a job, what splashes across the screen are the scenes of a family crumbling in the face of being taken out of its comfort zone. A film thick with desperation but I think that's exactly how the director meant it to be.

Rating: * * +
