Meaningless small talk and polite conviviality are the usual bill of fare when two successful brothers─attorney Massimo and pediatrician Paolo─and their wives meet each month for dinner at a ritzy restaurant. Things are different this time, however, as a TV news report appears to show Massimo's daughter and Paolo's son beating a homeless woman. Alessandro Gassman, Barbora Bobulova, Luigi Lo Cascio, and Giovanna Mezzogiorno star in this compelling Italian character study. 92 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Italian; Subtitles: English. In Italian with English subtitles.
