For the past twelve years, Rosario (Toni Servillo, IL DIVO) has run a restaurant-hotel in a small German town where he lives unassumingly with his wife and child. But the sudden appearance of two young Italian men threatens to expose a criminal past Rosario has worked hard to leave behind. Servillo’s brilliant turn explores the complexity of Rosario’s relationship with one of the men––soon revealed as his estranged son. His captivating performance shows a man torn between the guilt over abandoning his eldest son and the knowledge that a close relationship with him will be the end of his quiet life.
Filmmaker(s) expected to be in attendance for post-screening Q&A for both screenings.
