Film description

Mary and Kelly are driving in a car with their mother. Mary covers Marianne's eyes for fun and the car comes off the road. The woman is killed. Five months later, the two girls go to Genoa for a holiday with their father, Joe. All three of them live with the burden of the loss of someone they loved, each in his or her own way.

Michael Winterbottom's film is maybe a little conventional, but it is a moving intimate study of mourning. There are three different people and three versions of experiencing the suffering, three separate stories which will meet only at the end of the film. The seemingly inadequate background of the sunny Italian metropolis is in fact a reflection of the main characters' emotions. They simple do not accept the sad truth that something has passed and cannot be retrieved. Winterbottom's Genova is a distant but clear reference to the famous Don't Look Now by Nicolas Roeg.
