| A deep and special movie
First off the bat i really like this movie. I read in a review it was about human flexibility of coping with hardship and they were absolutely right. The movie gets to you the moment one starts watching it, the story is like a book that you want to finish in one swing.

The movie La nostra Vita is a movie with a distinct theme: Survival and Hope. At first the movie may be a little hard to keep up with as one just gets thrown in between an Italian family and their famous rapid conversations. However, at the important key points in the story the appropriate time is taken and the results in many beautiful scenes.

For this movie some experience with film theatre style movies is required as one has to stay focused and there are some scenes with small fragile play at times through which the real story is told. For those with the patience there are many rewards: There are raw emotions, deep scenes and especially haunting ones.

It dawned upon me after leaving the theatre that there were a lot of ideas the director wants you to see. The main idea this movie made clear to me is the sense of awareness and feel of duty a single dad of 3 can have, despite his errors and flaw in character, in order to save his family. Small subthemes like corruption discrimination, raising of children and relations with family are present and make the movie a nice whole.

For me as a non-Italian I really like the opportunity i got to peek into another culture and to hear and experience their language. On a small sidenote the movie suffers from not so great music and is at times a bit chaotic which unfortunately lowered my score to an 8.

For anyone looking for a real movie experience this will be a nice recommendation!
