France released, Blu-ray/Region A/B/C. Marcello is a wealthy, highly successful lawyer in Rome, who is visiting his son for the day in Civitavecchia, the port town where Michele has one more month of military duty left to serve. Each feels that the other is disrespectful of his privacy, and indeed Marcello asks Loredana, Michele's girlfriend, whom he meets for the first time, and only at his own insistence, how good in bed his son is. (This question, which she has the good sense not to answer, cracks up Loredana.) Marcello wants to know that his son is okay. Meanwhile, Marcello himself is not okay. Two years after suffering a heart attack, he is overweight, overindulging and smoking. His recurrent cough sounds horrible.
