Claudio is a young construction worker who lives happily with his pregnant wife Elena. One day at the construction site, he discovers the corpse of an illegal Romanian worker, but decides not to report the discovery for fear he’ll be out of a job. Claudio’s life suddenly takes an unexpected turn.
A former assistant director to Italian auteur Nanni Moretti, Daniele Luchetti followed up his moving My Brother Is an Only Child with this turbulent portrait of Roman suburban life. Featuring a ravishing performance from actor Elio Germano, Our Life is an inspired piece of social realist cinema.
Three Italian Academy awards and five other nominations. Interesting film about actual Italian society and the problems ordinary people have to face nowadays. The solutions, legal or illegal, they find are always morally tenable. Recommended.
