Moira+I – plus Hannah - maintained our excellent cinema attendance in 2009 by seeing “Genova” at the Watershed yesterday (two films in a weekend!).
An absorbing and sensitive film which explores death, guilt and grief. Colin Firth plays an academic who, following the sudden death of his wife, moves his two daughters to northern Italy. Afterwards, Moira+I both admitted to feeling a sense of anxiety throughout the film as the three main character (all beautifully played) cope with their grief in different ways and negotiate their new life.

We saw Genova yesterday too (6:10 pm performance). I liked it (especially the portrayal of the city) but found the scenes of the younger girl crying for her mother almost impossible to bear.
