Lacci - Directed by Daniele Luchetti
The first Italian film in over a decade to open the Venice Film Festival, Luchetti’s intricate and affecting film effortlessly shifts back and forth through the years, wresting new perspectives on age-old relationship conflicts. It’s emotional, indelible cinema.
Naples, early 1980’s. Aldo and Vanda go through a separation, after he reveals his affair. Their two young children are torn between their parents, in a whirlwind of resentment. But the ties that keep people together are inescapable, even without love. Now, 30 years later, Aldo and Vanda are still married.
