Two brothers – rich and prodigal Matteo and resigned and self-deprecating Ettore – could not be more different. But then a grave medical diagnosis completely changes their lives and forces them to rethink their priorities. Set among the Italian upper classes, this bittersweet film effectively captures the fleeting nature of precious moments.


Two brothers who couldn’t be more different. Rich and prodigal Matteo surrounds himself with luxury while meticulously caring for his appearance. The more modest Ettore, in contrast, hides his failures behind a façade of self-deprecation and resignation. But then a serious medical diagnosis completely changes their lives and forces them to rethink their priorities. This bittersweet film, about matters both evanescent and deadly serious, unfolds against a backdrop of lively parties and plaintive conversations. At the same time, it unobtrusively portrays the environment of the Italian upper crust but also touches on global issues.
