Engaging to watch especially with a female protagonist who can't totally get a grip of herself amidst the many roles she takes; as wife, mother, daughter.  Chiara Mastroianni as Lena was splendid and coupled with some mannerisms and the never-ending cigarette-in-hand stance,  she was spot-on with the character. One scene that stayed in my mind was when Lena's brother and her girlfriend were in a bathtub, with the girlfriend seeing a statue of Mother Mary and praying the Hail Mary. Support cast was generally commendable especially Marina Fois as Lena's sister and Jean-Marc Barr as Lena's ertswhile husband.  It's also a film wherein viewers get to have a glimpse of  family drama and with which most families and siblings can greatly relate to. Worth checking out!
