A Casa Tutti Bene
There Is No Place Like Home
Directed by Gabriele Muccino (2018)
An unexpected storm strands a family gathered to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of two elderly parents, Pietro and Alba, on the small island of Ischia in Italy. The numerous relatives are forced to live together under the same roof for two days and two nights with no way out. The storm that plagues the island inevitably ends up ruffling everyone’s spirits.
The lives of the siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, become inescapably intertwined, lingering between a past which rehashes old and unforgotten disputes, a present which rekindles unresolved conflicts, as well as a future which appears to be uncertain for everyone. The island morphs into a sort of prison for the members of this large and seemingly united family. Each person must reckon with their own personal, sentimental, familial or professional circumstances.
NOTE: The film is in Italian with ENGLISH subtitles.
