VIVERE
2019, Intramovies, 103 min, Italy, Dir: Francesca Archibugi

On the surface, the Attorres are as average as they come: They reside in a decorous suburb of Rome, get by comfortably with middle-class jobs and have an adorably imaginative 6-year-old daughter. Beneath this cozy façade, however, is a family unit on the verge of crisis. Family patriarch Luca is failing as a freelance journalist, wife and mother Susi finds herself teaching ballet exclusively to overweight women and daughter Lucilla, suffering from extreme asthma, is frequently neglected. When Mary Ann, an Irish Catholic au pair, arrives and starts to pry into the family’s affairs, tensions quickly rise to the surface. Starring Micaela Ramazzotti, Adriano Giannini, Massimo Ghini and Marcello Fonte (Cannes 2018 Best Actor for DOGMAN).
