    Drama

    Between raising her young son, taking care of her ill-tempered, cancer-battling mother, navigating her career as a top-notch lawyer dealing with a major corruption scandal, Silvia could very well be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. And what if the answer to all this was simply... love?

    Press

    An honest, empathetic portrait that delivers slower-burning rewards.

    Guy Lodge, Variety

    Affecting and intelligently observed.

    Guy Lodge, Variety

    Absorbing, accomplished, gentle and humorous. It engages completely. A moving tribute to maternal strength.

    Fionnuala Halligan, Screendaily

    Beautiful, emotional, universal, heartbreaking. Two superb actresses. A triumph.

    Simon Foster, Screen-Space

    A complexity in relationships that feels true to life.

    Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film

    Franco Lolli is operating on two emotional levels, both of which are highly charged, and he does so by conveying the great complexity of the situation with a lightness of touch.

    Bénédicte Prot, Cineuropa

    Absolutely fascinating. A true voyage of emotions.

    Gabriele Barducci, Vero Cinema

    An intense family drama full of truth, pain and affection for its characters.
