About the Movie

Academy-Award winner Juliette Binoche gives one of the finest performances of her career in this dazzling and emotionally rich debut feature from Italian wunderkind Piero Messina, who previously worked as the assistant director on Paolo Sorrentino's Oscar-winning The Great Beauty. In the vast rooms of a beautiful Sicilian villa, Anna (Binoche) receives an unexpected guest. Twenty-something Jeanne (the gorgeous Lou de Laâge) has arrived from France, declaring herself to be the girlfriend of Anna's son, Giuseppe, who has invited her to the house to spend Easter together. But this is news to Anna, and Giuseppe is not yet there. Despite the disruption to her routine, Anna invites her young guest to stay, and as the two women await Giuseppe's arrival, they slowly begin to form a connection. Jeanne, dislocated and a little mystified at first, gradually gives in to the charms of the volcanic island. She swims in the nearby lake and makes new friends, while Anna - watched over by a long-time family friend - comes out of her shell. Yet still, her son's absence remains unexplained.

Customer Reviews


The performances between the two female characters is strong. But the storyline was a tad bizarre.
Is Anna's grief too strong to be acknowledged? Does she wish to spare Jeanne any grief?
I still dont know.
