Una famiglia perfetta / A Perfect Family

Director: Paolo Genovese
Stars: Sergio Castellitto, Marco Giallini, Claudia Gerini, Giacomo Nasta, Lorenzo Zurzolo, Carolina Crescentini, Ilaria Occhini, Francesca Neri, Romuald Andrzej Klos
 
A powerful middle-aged man, despite the wealth, suffers enormously their loneliness. For Christmas so he decides to hire a troupe of actors to play the perfect family that has always dreamed of having. The story so travels on two levels: one real and the other following a script written by the protagonist and provided the performers. But gradually the two levels are mixed and the script is gradually disregarded: the reality fits in fiction, and each role is constantly being called into question, until the final revelation that gives meaning to the whole affair. Remake of Fernando León de Aranoa's Familia (1996).

Four loosely connected stories set in a small town in Kazakhstan at the beginning of the 90s, a time of transition from the Soviet era to a new state inscribed with emotional and economic depression. Each of the four main characters, all of whom are 13 years old, must go through a painful transition themselves; this presents them with a moral dilemma. They turn from being children – or ‘angels’ – to grown-ups, and are wounded along the way.
