A touching and beautifully filmed comedic drama from an acclaimed Italian director that is filled with emotional true-to-life performances.

But 20 years on, will Anna’s misanthropic son be able to rekindle a bond with his estranged family in the wake of his mother’s illness? A Cinema Space presentation in Italian with English subtitles.
