Los Angeles premiere, 9 days before it opens at the Laemmle!
Set in modern day Milan, this is a Chaplinesque odyssey seen through the eyes of Antonia Pane, a kind, middle-aged man who takes on every conceivable temporary job in order to be useful and have self respect. Beautifully wrought by master Italian director Gianni Amelio, it is a picture of Italy as a failed economy and a place where facades are more important than what lies beneath. Superbly embodied by leading actor Antonio Albanese, Pane is a man who, despite loneliness and personal family problems, especially around his gifted but troubled musician son, remains defiantly optimistic even when terrible things happen to him and the people he meets.
“A stinging and sobering portrait of the struggle for subsistence and dignity in the face of economic despair, while laced with muted comedic charm.” – Prairie Miller, Critical Women
