“‘L’Immensità’ is a grand and vibrant work of art.” – Lena Wilson, The Wrap
Rome, 1970s. Clara (Penélope Cruz) 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, the same children that are the siphon for all of Clara’s dreams of freedom.
But when Adri, the eldest, tells everyone that he now identifies as a boy and adopts the male name Andrea, it brings the already fragile stability of her family to breaking point. 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 them.
Directed by Emanuele Crialese, the film is heavily based on his own life experience. It premiered in competition at the 2022 Venice Film Festival.
