Based on the novel by Sandro Veronesi, this profoundly moving nonlinear epic depicts the strange, wondrous life of Marco Carrera (Pierfrancesco Favino) from childhood through adulthood to his final years.
Everyone in Marco’s (Favino) life seems to be restless and searching, from his brilliant but unhappily married parents (Morante, Sergio Albelli), to his wife, Marina (Kasia Smutniak), to Luisa (Bejo), the real love of his life, a woman he’s always known, always stayed in contact with, but never touched. Drama and chance seem to haunt Marco — he declared Marina his soulmate because both of them narrowly avoided perishing in a plane crash, while later in life Marco discovered an uncanny talent for gambling — yet he somehow manages never to get ensnared in the chaos in his midst. His nickname is Hummingbird (Il Colibrì) because he devotes all his energy to staying fixed in one place.
