DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets - GEN­OVA, ABC1, 8.30pm

THERE’S a car crash right at the start — you’ll see this coming — and Joe (Colin Firth) packs up the fam­ily and they move to Gen­ova in Italy. It’s meant to be for a year, but we’ll see. He may be mad with grief, but you can’t blame him, af­ter all that snow and grey in Eng­land. Plus he’s got a teach­ing job to go to. Kelly, one of the kids, is a teenager who gets leered at a lot. This is a small, per­sonal, quiet film, sev­eral years old now, about griev­ing and pain and love, nicely acted, with gor­geous lo­ca­tions, di­rected by Bri­tish film­maker Michael Win­ter­bot­tom.
