A beautiful film. It is a difficult, almost unbearable watch at times, if you really empathize with the characters that is. Nanni Moretti reveals he is a true humanist with little or no sentimentality: at the heart of this emotionally sincere film there are universal themes about bereavement & the grieving process.
Watching the film, I originally rated it 3/5. But after that, I could not get "The Son's Room" out of my head. Or the music. Or every scene. It's actually a truly special film, even if it doesn't feel like it at the time.
