HUMAN CAPITAL

DIRECTOR: PAOLO VIRZÌ - ITALY

Winner of all the top Italian film awards, this stylish ensemble piece offers a powerful commentary on Italian social class, privilege, and the value of human life in a crucible. A cyclist is run off the road by a careening SUV. As details emerge of the events leading up to the accident, the lives of the privileged and detached Bernaschi family intertwine with the Rovellis, who struggle to keep up appearances and their comfortable middle-class life. A taut character study that observes the transformative events from each character’s perspective, the result is a nuanced account of desire and greed in the age of rampant capitalism and financial manipulation. “An elegant Chinese puzzle of a movie, deftly constructed, and boosted by strong performances.”—The Observer, London.
