Turin 1969. Massimo’s idyllic childhood is shattered by the mysterious death of his mother. The sensitive boy refuses to accept what happened. Years later, now a successful journalist, he is forced to sell his parents’ flat. Memories come flooding back, along with the anguish of an unresolved past.

MUBI's take

Across 6 decades Italian maestro Marco Bellocchio has made some of the great masterworks of his homeland’s cinema—this sublime 2016 entry finds him in a tender register, examining the eternal bonds between mother and son. A perceptive look at the ties that bind and the long shadow cast by childhood.
