Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman makes the painful discovery that her family is not all that she believed it to be in the drama L'Ospite/The Guest. Giulia (Elodie Treccani) works for her father's law film and still lives in her parents' luxurious home. However, she soon realizes the young man from Thailand who is their new houseguest is not just a family friend -- he is Guilia's mother's lover, and almost half her age. Father, however, has an even bigger secret -- he's been having an affair with a man young enough to be his son. L'Ospite/The Guest was the feature debut from director Alessandro Colizzi and was shown at in the Forum section of the 1999 Berlin Film Festival.
