    • Synopsis
    • Two brothers, who have opposite characters
      and make opposite life choices: Massimo
      (Alessandro Gassman) is a trendy lawyer and
      Paolo (Luigi Lo Cascio) is a paediatrician, their
      wives are constantly in conflict. They have been
      meeting once a month for many years in a luxury
      restaurant just to respect a tradition.
      Their conversation is always inconsistent: salted
      anchovies with ricotta and fried vegetables, the
      most recent French film to come out, the fruity
      scent of a wine, the latest corrupt politician.
      But one evening a security camera films a
      bravado of their respective children and the
      family’s balance is utterly shattered.
      How will the two men, two families so different,
      face-up to a tragic event that involves them so
      closely?
      Freely inspired by the book “The dinner” by
      Herman Koch, the film is provocative and deeply
      painful, it violently breaks into the bourgeois
      reality of family life unhinging the foundations.
