  • When Antonia (Margherita Buy) loses her husband Massimo in a terrifying car accident, she is devastated. Taking care of necessary business after his death, she runs across a painting, a gift to her husband with a note attached indicating that Antonia's partner of 15 years had been indiscreet for seven of them. She tracks down his lover and finds that Massimo has been involved in a homosexual affair with a man named Michele (Stefano Accorsi). She also finds in Michele's home an adopted family of misfits who all knew and loved her deceased husband. As Antonia attempts to understand her husband's secret, she becomes accepted into this commune and also begins to have some of her own loving admirers, including Michele. Turkish director Ferzan Ozpetek (STEAM: THE TURKISH BATH) directs this touching film that places caring and understanding before judgement or anger.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...The film is lovely and touching....The acting is impeccable, and the intentions are serious and noble..."
    New York Times

    "...Impressive....[A] perceptive probe into the complexities and ambiguities of sexual identity....This graceful and wise film moves to its denouement with subtlety and, at its end, strikes a not that seems just right for all that has gone before..."
    Los Angeles Times
