Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
An Italian author in contention for the local equivalent of the Booker Prize finds himself falling for his daughter’s swimming teacher, unaware that the woman in question is harbouring a dark secret. Unwisely, this elegant but altogether airless drama chooses to spend more time on the writer (Valerio Mastandrea), his male mid-life neuroses and crumbling marriage, when the lover character is far more interesting – especially given Golino’s outstanding performance. Her work here will be a revelation to some, though the film itself seems to mistake waffly indecision for existential crisis. Cherishable home furnishings, though.
