Rome, 1970s: a world which straddles new neighborhoods being created, societal advances and family models that now seem outdated. Clara and Felice have just moved into a new apartment. Their marriage has reached a point of no return: they no longer love each other, but they can’t seem to leave each other either. Their children are the only thing that keeps them together. As the children search around them for guidance — be it a voice from above or a song on the TV — everything changes, both inside and outside of themselves.
This film is simultaneously gorgeous and brutal to watch, exquisitely illustrating how the human spirit continues to cultivate joy even in the face of insurmountable suffering.Chicago Reader
Everything in “L’Immensità” is beautiful even when everything wasn’t: Crialese’s odd, affecting memory piece layers the world as it was, is and could be in the same gilded frame.Variety
