Synopsis

On a winter’s day, Nena brings her family together to celebrate her birthday. Everyone is there: her husband Umberto; her son Vito and his wife Adelina; her daughter Caterina and her ex-boyfriend Manfredi with his new girlfriend Joana; cousin Isabella; her housekeeper Lucia and her daughter Grazia; and Alma, her grand-daughter, the child of Vito and Adelina. And then there is Paco, Alma’s peacock. While waiting for a lunch that will never arrive, Paco falls in love with a little dove in a painting. An impossible love that shakes the whole family: everybody is pushed to reflect on their true feelings and on what remains and what is gone forever.

Director’s Statement

There are films that you chase for years and others that suddenly come into your life and surprise you. Il paradiso del pavone is a small journey into the intimacy and authenticity of human beings: a film about an extended family in which everyone talks but no one really listens. Until an unexpected event forces the characters to look into each other’s eyes and reveal themselves for what they truly are. It is as if their lives suddenly became ours, in a mirror of feelings that makes us reflect on the complexity of human relationships, on the mystery of loss, on the thousands of voices that speak to us from within, on the importance of silence, on our constant search for love.
