Italy 2018 | 115 minutes | Italian | Hebrew, English subtitles
Matteo is an Italian businessman - successful, handsome, and narcissistic with a thriving social life and loving boyfriend. When his older brother, a teacher who lives in their home town, is diagnosed with a brain tumor, Matteo hides the fatal news from his family and invites his brother to stay with him in Rome while he undergoes therapy. Valeria Golino (Honey), continues to explore close relationships in the shadow of death. With meticulous characterization and a loose plotline, she evokes immediate empathy for the brothers and the bond they share. Cinema does not often deal with sibling relationships, and Euphoria’s merit is in capturing its intensity.
