Our Ghosts

105min   |   Italian  |  by Alessandro Capitani 


Valerio and his six-year-old son, Carlo, live in the attic above the apartment they've been evicted from. Every time new tenants arrive, they terrify them by pretending to be ghosts, in the hopes of being able to move back "downstairs".


To Carlo, it's just a game that protects him from their poverty and his motherless condition. It even works, for a while, until Myriam and her daughter Emma arrive, in flight from her abusive husband. And Myriam's not afraid of ghosts…
