87min. Italian Color | 2015 Italy | 


Tommaso is a respected heart surgeon, but rather arrogant, always bragging about his brilliance. His relationship with his long time wife Carla has been not so great lately. They have two children. Oldest, Bianca, has no interests, no passions: a nice slob. Andrea instead is brilliant, a med school student, ready to follow in the footsteps of his father. Lately, however, Andrea seems to have changed. He gathers his family and tells them something unexpected.

Inspired by his love of classic Italian comedies, Edoardo Falcone, who has enjoyed a long career as a screenwriter, sets out to depict real life in a humorous and earthy way in his directorial debut. Inspired by those who attain power while pretending to be intelligent and never paying recognizing their own shortcomings, the drama focuses on an arrogant doctor whose life and values are completely upended after an encounter with a priest. Falcone has said, “It’s a light comedy, but not too light”. This important work reminds us that prior to the rise of social intolerance, people’s attitudes were more flexible and generous. It has also led to the director’s newfound popularity in his home country of Italy.
