Movie Reviews

Guilt and Innocence

This highly refined soap opera shows, from different perspectives of the family members, what sexual beings we are, and however sophisticated we try to live a life, we still remain weak and easily hurt. Underlining the weight of a Catholic background on questions of body and soul, this solidly structured drama is partly framed through the innocent eyes of Rita's youngest daughter (Maria Luisa De Crescenzo) as she prepares for her first Holy Communion and the celebratory lunch being planned by her grandmother.

The title refers to that lunch. It's a moment a nine year old girl realises this must be "the best day of her life", considering this might be the last day she enjoys her parents being happy together.
