Human Capital begins at the end, with an accident the night before Christmas Eve. As details emerge of the events leading up to the accident, the lives of a well-to-do Bernaschi family, privileged and detached, will intertwine with another, struggling to keep their comfortable middle-class life, in ways neither could have expected. Paolo Virzi's taut character study deconstructs the typical linear narrative, observing transformative events from each character's perspective. The result is a nuanced account of desire, greed and the value of human life in an age of rampant capitalism and financial manipulation. In Italian language with English subtitles.
