Following the phenomenally successful THE LAST KISS, Italian director Gabriele Muccino’s most recent film offers a blistering assessment of two generations of a middle-class family.
Dad (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), a frustrated novelist, takes up with an old flame (Monica Bellucci). Mum (Laura Morente), a teacher returns to her ambition of acting with unforseen results. Their 18 year old daughter dreams of becoming a TV star, while their 19 year old son has no idea what to do with his life.
REMEMBER ME affirms Muccino’s position at the forefront of a group of young filmmakers pushing (Italian) national cinema into new territory.
