La stanza del figlio (2001)

The Son's Room is an emotional investigation into life after death in Italy.

An ideal professional family, active and communicative lose their son in an accident, they struggle to find an appropriate way to live. The father, a psychologist has trouble listening to other people go on and on about their problems when he dismisses these in comparison with the heartache he has. The surviving daughter struggles to continue contact with her increasingly distant parents.

Without stooping to melodrama and a trite answer to the issue, The Son's Room honestly explores a variety of responses to loss. The film won accolades when it came out and it should continue to be watched today.
