Parenthood by Moretti

MUBI Special

The Son's Room

Nanni Moretti Italy, 2001

Nanni Moretti never engaged in such emotive territory than in this riveting depiction of a family’s tragedy–both as director and as actor. A mainstay in Cannes, he received massive acclaim (including the critics prize and the Palme d’Or!) for this gentle, mature, exquisitely tender story of rebirth.


Nanni Moretti Italy, 1998

In this semi-autobiographical work, Nanni Moretti plays the father, or himself, or perhaps both–alongside his own wife and son! Documenting the aftermath of political elections, but also his child’s birth, April juggles between the political and the personal in Moretti’s usual neurotic, comic style.
