Sorry, but I just had to make a new thread for this one.



La stanza del figlio is a great Italian film of how a family copes with the loss and hurt when the son dies. The English title is "The son's room" but that doesn't do justice to it's original title as "Stanza" can be translated as both "room" and "verse" (as in a poem), which really means much more.

Now, I know what you're thinking. God another drama. But that's not the case. This is no Hollywood style film and the storie is brought to you very, VERY well. It's never boring, always fascinating and sometimes so real it becomes frightening.

MASTERPIECE :star::star::star::star::star:

As can be expected from director Nanni Moretti of course.

Sounds interesting, maybe I'll take a look if it's at the local foreign film place...

btw the word "stanza" is used in English when talking about poems too ;)
