Giorni e Nuvole (Days and Clouds) by Silvio Soldini

Frantically edited, Cassavetes-esque emotionally-charged atmosphere, but also somber in a way, a phenomenological treatise on fall from a financial pedestal, as compared to a existential one in "Time Out".

Worthy of a longer, more patient treatment. Camera work too jerky for my tastes, the shots of a cloudy Genoa present a claustrophobic atmosphere quite fitting the film.
