Watch: Respiro 2002 123movies, Full Movie Online – Grazia is a mother of three who spends suffocating days packing fish while her husband Pietro is at sea. Her oft-erratic behavior leads Pietro into thinking she may need medical attention, and he prepares to send her off to a psychiatric institute in Milan. Their son Pasquale, the one person who understand his mother the most, vows to do whatever it takes to foil his father’s plan..
Plot: Grazia is a free-spirited mother-of-three married to shy fisherman Pietro and living on the idyllic but isolated island of Lampedusa in the Mediterranean Sea. She shows signs of manic depressive behavior — one moment she’s laughing wildly and swimming half-naked in the sea, while the next she’s curled in a ball on her bed. Out of her earshot, the adult members of her extended family vaguely discuss sending her to a facility of some sort in Northern Italy.

An Immersion Into The Sensuality of A Sunny Island
It’s hard to put a grade on a perfect day at the beach, just as it’s difficult to assess exactly what a Guilty Pleasure might be. But this quirky film has become one of my favorites; each time I watch it, the stark sensuality of the sunlit beaches, the halcyon quality of the sea and sky and the community which exists simply in the midst of all this nature become part of my own consciousness, comfortably.
Respiro is not an entertaining film in the usual sense of the word, and it’s insights come from an immersion in the atmosphere, from the insistence that life is to lived freely and for the moment, and this never stated nor preached. The children are totally natural and appealing presences, the adults often like spoiled children; the sound of the sea is everywhere. While one may read valid personal or social significance into the film, I see it as is a simple experience, an immersion in the life and morality of the town for a day or two and that’s quite enough for me.
