Balancing Act

Gli equilibristi

Directed by Ivano De Matteo
Italy, France, 2012


Giulio is forty and lives a seemingly quiet life: a rented house, a permanent job, a car paid for by instalments, a rebellious but nice daughter, a sweet dreamy son and a wife he loves and cheats on. Giulio is caught out and dumped. His perfect life suddenly falls apart.
