Product Description

Anna has everything she thought she could ever need: a respectable career, a caring family, and a loving partner, Alessio. But when she meets Domenico, a handsome, married waiter, her neatly ordered world begins to fall apart. They quickly fall into a heated affair, based on secret meetings, stolen caresses, cell phone fights, and endless lies. Anna's increasingly distant behavior goes unnoticed by Alessio, while Domenico's wife becomes steadily more suspicious of her husband. As the two lovers begin to fall deeper under the spell of passion, they are faced with a life-changing choice which neither is entirely prepared to make.

Bonus features include a complementary short film, Director's Statement, and Bio, amongst other features.

Silvio Soldini again crafts a handsome, well-considered relationship drama! --Jay Weissberg, Variety

It's a vicarious joy to watch the lovers suffer for their passion… Just as the lovers' meetings have a pleasant, naturalistic quality, the impending fallout feels like something softer than total disaster, in a modern way. --Justin Stewart, The L Magazine

COME UNDONE ('Cosa voglio di più', the Italian title means 'What More Do I Want') is a very slight film by the well respected director Silvio Soldini ('Bread and Tulips', 'Days and Clouds', etc), a story that seems to get mired in its own passion, unable to transmit a story line that will keep the audience's attention. Perhaps this is due to the 'too many cooks spoil the broth' concept: in addition to Soldini the story and screenplay were nursed by Doriana Leondeff, and Angelo Carbone. The cast is a strong one but the actors are just not given much to develop, leaving the audience with the repeated question 'what if...?'

Anna (Alba Rohrwacher) is an accountant for an important insurance firm and lives with her longterm lover Alessio (Giuseppe Battiston) - a man who longs fro a stable longterm relationship with children, a home, etc. Anna, feeling as though the fire has fizzled in that relationship and takes up with co-worker Domenico (Pierfrancesco Favino) and the two begin a passionate affair. Now it is Anna who is considering a longterm relationship but is thwarted by the fact that Domenico is married to Miriam (Teresa Saponangelo) and has children and doesn't want to leave his wife, instead preferring passionate occasional intervals with Anna in tacky motels. It becomes a struggle of human nature - which is preferable, a stable home life or intermittent moments of passion?

The actors give this film their all and the encounters between Anna and Domenico are incredibly sensuous. The problem lies with the story's lack of resolution or even momentum: it gets stuck in the process of offering a solution for the lovers. It is simply not up to the same standards as Soldini's other works - but those are fairly high standards to reach. Given the film's few flaws it is still a beautiful visual experience.

I have been a fan of Film Movement, which releases foreign and indie films at a regular clip (once a month), and recently picked up this one. Didn't know much about the movie beforehand, on purpose, as I like to be surprised (good or bad).

"Come Undone" (124 min; originally released in 2010) is an excellent Italian movie, exploring the effects of an extra-marital affair between two unlikely protagonists. Anna is in a stable relationship with her live-in boyfriend, surrounded by a caring family and having a good career. She meets Domenico, who himself is married with 2 kids. Yet they find themselves unstoppably attracked to each other and start an affair. They are both trying to cover up as much as possible, but eventually they have to face the fork in the road: continue this or call it quits? I'm not going to tell you how it plays out, you'll just have to watch it for yourself.

The movie moves at a slow pace, and I mean this as a compliment, and the lead actors shine throughout. Beware: there are a number of nudity scenes in the movie, if that is a problem for anyone. This is another great release from the Film Movement library, and I encourage you to seek them out. Meanwhile, "Come Undone" is highly recommended!

After being totally wowed by "Agata and the Storm" and "Days and Clouds," Soldini's latest film did not disappoint. Like his other movies, "Come Undone" explores a relationship. Here, we see apathetic Anna (played by Alba Rohrwacher) and charming Domenico (Pierfrancesco Favino) have an affair, despite both being in committed relationships - Domenico even has children. Anna's life was perfectly fine before with a tragically caring and sweet-hearted man, Alessio (played clueless but kind by Giuseppe Battiston), and a stable lifestyle. Of course, though, too much of a good life becomes boring and she is thus led into her relationship with Domenico after a chance meeting. They have an irresistible attraction, to be sure. Rohrwacher and Favino are magnificent together; the sexual attraction is palpable and practically jumping off the screen.

"Come Undone" could have been just like any other movie about the affair but Soldini and his co-screenwriters, Doriana Leondeff and Angelo Carbone, made it different by choosing to focus on the daily aspects of life. Rather than giving great importance to big events and happenings, "Come Undone" instead looks at the time that make up the majority of a lifetime: regular days. We see how the affair takes a toll on these days as well as the lives of Alessio, Domenico's wife Miriam (Teresa Saponangelo) and their kids, as well some of Anna and Domenico's family and friends. "Come Undone" takes into account the practical and prudent aspects of having an affair: where and when to meet, how to communicate, and, most importantly, how to fund the affair. This different perspective on an old story is what makes Soldini's newest movie so fascinating. That the actors convey real people and really make us care for them - no matter how immoral they may be - is a lucky and happy addition to an overall moving film.

Both parties are pleasant and relateable, neither are established sinner nor saint. We see into their very regular lives, so much so that parts of the film feel like reality television. We are made to see how their lives are stifling and repetitive so that we can imagine the relief an affair would give them. We also see how the affair taxes them. We see how much work goes into planning and lying so much so that it seems it would be less work to stay at home and fix their respective home lives. Only there's not much that can be fixed. The man needs more money for his growing family. The woman sees the inevitability of kids with a man she's too accustomed to. None of these problems are solved by an affair. What an affair, or any escapist behaviour, "solves" is the inevitability, the sheer tedium. As it breaks that it, unfortunately, breaks other things.

The Italian title says it best, "What more do I want?" If wanting were the natural state of mankind, no set of circumstances, positive or negative, would curb it for long.

I felt wretched after watching this.
