(M) A dour fea­ture de­but from Piero Messina in which Juli­ette Binoche plays a woman mourn­ing the death of her son in a re­mote Si­cil­ian villa and who is un­able to tell the son’s girl­friend (Lou de Laage), who turns up on a visit, the truth. Loosely based on a Pi­ran­dello story, the film is beau­ti­fully crafted and con­sum­mately acted, but it’s all pretty hol­low and ter­ri­bly con­trived.

Se­quenza Ital­iana The Aus­tralian Cham­ber Orches­tra presents this per­for­mance fea­tur­ing Gio­vanni Sol­lima on cello, Satu Van­ska on vi­o­lin and Maxime Bibeau on dou­ble bass. City Recital Hall, 2 An­gel Place, Sydney. Tonight, 7pm. Tick­ets: $43-$117. Book­ings: 1800 444 444 or on­line.
