Marco Bellocchio’s most recent movie is a stylish, affecting adaptation of the contemporary Italian novel by Massimo Gramellini. Sensitively depicting Massimo, a journalist whose whole life has been emotionally blighted by the mysterious death of his mother when he was a young boy, Sweet Dreams gradually shows how his exploration of the past starts to cathartically change his present.
