Starring: Liam Neeson, Micheál Richardson, Lindsay Duncan, Valeria Bilello
Comedy drama written and directed by James D’Arcy. Set in Tuscany, the story follows London artist Robert (Liam Neeson), who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Micheál Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair. Renovations go badly, with father and son soon finding themselves at odds. As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.

[referring to the land of the house]
Kate: We’ll mark the view as a ten. But the potholes down on that drive are a serious drawback. I may have whiplash. Things can only get better. Front door?
Robert: I don’t hear from you in months, and then this sudden need to sell the Tuscan house by last Tuesday.
Jack: The house has been empty for twenty years. We just cheer the place up a bit and get it sold.
Kate: [to Robert and Jack] Tuscany is a romantic idyll. It’s why all my clients come here. You have delivered me a building site, whose walls seem to have been painted by Mussolini.
Robert: [to Jack] I wouldn’t go in the bathroom if I were you. There’s a large weasel in the sink. That’s not a euphemism.
[trying to explain to Kate and the builders what they found in the bathroom]
Jack: Ferret. Furetto. It’s a rat, but like the size of a baguette. Like a rat baguette.
[to Jack; referring to the Italian builders as they look at the hole in the ceiling]
Kate: Rough translation, “Very doable.”
Natalia: You’re on holiday?
Jack: I’m actually here to sell an old family house.
Natalia: I love that house.
Jack: Do you want to buy it?
Natalia: I can only pay you in risotto. How many bowls do you want for it?
Robert: The way the light hits those windows, it takes your breath away.
Jack: No. That’s the dust doing that.
Natalia: Why are you selling it?
Robert: Jack’s memories of the house are not so good.
Natalia: I heard about your mother, Jack. I’m sorry.
Jack: I don’t remember anything.
Robert: You can’t remember her, and I can’t forget.
Robert: This house deserves to have its history honored.
Robert: Everyone lets everyone down at some point. How you come back from that, that’s romance.
