La Tenerezza

Gianni Amelio

Italy, 2016, 103 minutes

La Tenerezza is scaled down to an intimate level, taking on public issues and using them as the backdrop to a story of two families and the dysfunction within them. Venerable star Renato Carpentieri plays Lorenzo, an elderly lawyer of dubious ethics. Alienated from his children, he finds himself drawn to some new neighbors. Michela and her husband, Fabio, head a family that appears happier and more unified than Lorenzo’s own, but a different picture emerges as he gets close to them. The filmis set in Naples, a city rich in heritage but facing new challenges. Ace cinematographer Luca Bigazzi and composer Franco Piersanti pay tribute to the storied locale: the fading splendor of the city is made rich for our eyes, and the score complements this sad beauty. Amelio has made a film that pleases the senses as much as it stirs the soul.—Vancouver International Film Festival
