In this day and age, who has the time to sit through an Italian movie 6½ hours long?

For anyone willing to undertake the endeavor, however, "Le Cose che Restano" (originally a TV mini-series) offers huge reward.

It's all about the life and times of the Giordani Family in Rome, headed by (secretly) promiscuous patriarch Pietro (Ennio Fantastichini).

The Giordanis' prosperous, close-knit family circle begins to unravel when teenage son Lorenzo (Alessandro Sperduti) suddenly dies. Visually stunning, infinitely luxurious and highly caloric fare.
