A year in my Life (2006)

A Year in My Life is set in France during the 1950s. Nine-year-old Pippo grew up in the city in a dysfunctional family, where his father was permanently confined to his bed, and his mother, with no scruples whatsoever, lazed about in the room next door with her lover and never showed the slightest interest in her son. After a violent quarrel in the family, the boy is sent to an orphanage for a time, from where he is soon taken away by a quiet, childless married couple to their farm in the country. The film is a sensitive depiction of a difficult time in which Pippo gradually adapts to the alien environment and his adoptive family. He grows closer to the other inhabitants of his new world and embarks upon his long journey to adulthood. For the director, who mulled over the possibility of making this film for over twenty years, the story has special significance, since it is based to a considerable extent on his own experiences from childhood.
