An elegant and emotional Italian family chronicle, which closely follows a separation and its far reaching consequences. In 80s Naples, the marriage of Aldo and Vanda, parents of two children, is crackling when Aldo admits to having a mistress. We follow the painful separation and how it affects Aldo, Vanda and their children during a timespan of over 30 years. Opening the Venedig Film Festival earlier this year, The Ties is a very well-acted drama that brings movies like Kramer vs Kramer and Marriage Story to mind.
