    • Synopsis
    • The lives of six characters, struggling with their own painful past and with complicated love relationships, weave in and out of Dr. Bernardo and Dr. Chiara psychoanalytic practices.
      Vivi can’t forgive her partner a mistake of the past; the little girl Beatrice behaves like an adult but doesn’t want to give up her baby bottle; Mr. Brambilla beds his ex-wife after leaving her for a fellow soccer player; Mr. Francot is obsessed with the origins of his name; Michela is in love with her employer; Daniela watches life go by, eating seated at a bar counter…
      But the two professionals of the psyche need comfort too: while Bernardo looks for the support of his colleague, Chiara ends up in the house of the fortune-teller Corina, who in turn confesses herself to the same Chiara, in a kaleidoscope of narrated events and never metabolized feelings.
      The dialogue for two voices becomes the time and the mood where they tell and recompose their own stories: the choir, composed by a multitude of characters, sometimes breaks his voice remembering the pain, sometimes joins in a disenchanted irony, that is the heart and the rhythm of the movie. And perhaps even of life.
