Paola Cortellesi directs and stars in this crowd-winning gem as Delia, a wife and mother doing her best to get by in the scarred city of Rome following the war in 1946. Money is short and her husband, Ivano, is a violent brute who responds to her morning greeting by slapping her in the face. Delia juggles taking care of the home, three children, and a bedridden father-in-law, with scrambling for cash to contribute to the household – and to the pockets of the ever-demanding Ivano.But everything changes when Delia receives a mysterious letter that ignites her courage to strive for a better life – not just for herself. Inspired by the stories of grandmothers and great-grandmothers.

C'è ancora domani is the first feature film directed by Paola Cortellesi. And it was an unprecedented hit in her own country, where it outperformed Barbie and Oppenheimer.  She is widely regarded as one of the most versatile artists in the Italian film industry. “I wanted to set a realistic tone, and it is a very Italian thing to use humor even in the most tragic situations,” she said. “Life was very tough after the war, but there were also stories of hope.”

C'è ancora domani received critical acclaim, winning the Best Historical Film at the Rome International Film Festival and earning nominations for Best Actress and Best Cinematography at the European Film Awards.

“A considered tale of small victories on the road to female empowerment” Screen Daily
