Dado Ruspoli in The House of Smiles

The House of Smiles

1988 NR

Confined to a rest home by her relatives, an elderly woman (Ingrid Thulin) with all her faculties in place finds love with one of her fellow residents (Dado Ruspoli). But can the couple keep their blossoming romance a secret from the asylum's unsympathetic staff? Italian film director Marco Ferreri helms this foreign-language tale of mature love, parental boundaries and one woman's search for freedom.
