Human Capital is director Paolo Virzì’s drama about money, families going haywire because of it, and a guy on a bike who, one dark snowy night, loses his life and brings theirs into glaringly sharp focus.
The cast is inspired, with Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s neurotic and tentative mannerisms serving her well as the fragile matriarch, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, the foolish social climber Dino, and newcomer Matilde Gioli absolutely perfect as the teenager that enables everyone’s bad behavior and then runs behind them trying to clean up their messes.
Dino and wealthy narcissist Giovanni Bernaschi (Fabrizio Gifuni) are separated by class but united by their childrens’ friendship and Bruno’s half-baked scheme to make money. Giovanni doesn’t want his wife (Bruni Tedeschi) to worry her “pretty little head” about the financial pickle they find themselves in and Dino keeps his (Valeria Golino) completely in the dark, so she doesn’t even know that she should be worried.
Luigi Lo Cascio is crazy fun in the role of Russomanno, the delusional art director who gets a roll in the hay with a frustrated wife and doesn’t know enough to count his blessings and move on.
