La Nostra Vita – *(*)

Posted: January 17, 2017 in 2010, Drama, Italy, Social Drama, X1/2

An Italian construction worker discovers a dead body of an illegal worker at the construction site and doesn’t report out of fear that authorities will close down the place. A few days later he loses his wife during the birth of their third child. From then on his life becomes a mess. Left alone to raise three kids, he starts focussing on work. He’s able to blackmail his boss. He’ll keep the death of the illegal worker a secret in return for more responsibility during the building process of another project. But the job seems too difficult…

Elio Germano is great as the construction worker. He’s a bit of a prick, but he has a lot of  charm as well. His character feels real, even though the situation around him doesn’t.

There’s a lot of misery in this movie. So be warned. There’s hardly any humor and there’s hardly anyone to sympathize with. But some scenes make it worth the watch.
