The Son's Room


(La Stanza del figlio)

Director Nanni Moretti

Giovanni is a psychiatrist with a successful practice in a small community near the ocean. He has a warm relationship with his wife Paola and they have a pair of well-adjusted teenage kids, Andrea and Irene. But the family's calm is shattered when Andrea is unexpectedly killed in an accident. Giovanni finds it impossible to continue with his work and blames himself for the death, since he was planning to go jogging with Andrea that morning before he opted instead to take an emergency call from a client. Paola and Irene try to keep their emotions in check, but both find this all but impossible as they sink further into anger and grief. The appearance of an unexpected visitor, however, forces the family to confront their feelings about Andrea.
