The Author traces in G. Amelio’s latest film "Tenderness" the relationship between words and non-verbal communication, actions between family members or couples and affection affinities. The movie deals with tri-generational families as has long been the case, for example, in the systemic psychotherapy of the family. Words are not enough. It is necessary to take into consideration the body’s reactions to identify the psychological situation.
