Movie synopsis: The statues of distinguished Italians on a square in Genoa discuss the current situation in Italy. Under their gaze, the story of widower Leo unfolds as he tries to help his two children, Maddalena, whose ex published their intimate video online, and Eli, who speaks with storks and his best friend is a female stork named Agostina. Leo is visited by his deceased wife, but an eccentric artist, Diana (Alba Rohrwacher), appears in his life as well. The distinguished director, Silvio Soldini, focuses on the stories of ordinary, “unimportant” people, relying on a specific charm and magic realism. Because some dreams may come true, although in an unexpected way.
