The veneer of a happy marriage disguises an ugly secret in this hard-hitting drama from Italy. Anita and Michele (Laura Morante and Luca Zingaretti) are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their wedding. At a dinner party in which the couple's friends and family are helping to mark this joyous occasion, Anita decides its time to get a few things off her chest. It quickly becomes clear that their marriage is not all it appears to be. The mood turns ugly and then argumentative, finally exploding with a shocking act of violence. Shot primarily in close-ups that mirror the tension of the story, L'anniversario (aka The Anniversary) is marked by powerful performances from Laura Morante and Luca Zingaretti.
