It’s been a bit. That is as close to ‘It’s been awhile’ I can get in Italian…
It has been awhile since I featured a foreign film on my blog and I saw a really heartwarming one a few nights ago.
Quiet Chaos (2008) via Netflix
Pietro Paladini is off enjoying the day at the beach with his brother when two women in the water cry out for help. His brother saves one and Pietro the other. The insane irony is when he returns home to find that his wife has fallen off a ladder and is dead in their garden.
Pietro is left to raise their daughter Claudia while dealing with her silent grief as well as his own. Dropping her off to school he tells her he will wait on the bench till she gets out, he decides to do this everyday. Pietro goes through is day working from his car oblivious to a big merger as he developes small relationships with the people surrounding his daughters school.
Low key with a few twists but very touching.
SN: Why doesn’t English sound as lyrical as other languages?
