LOVE & SLAPS
LA BELLEZZA DEL SOMARO
2011, Intra Movies, 107 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Castellito

In actor-director Sergio Castellito's (DON’T MOVE) romp-like farce of aging and family dynamics, successful architect Marcello (played by Castellito) is approaching the half-century mark with stress and neurosis. He and psychologist wife Marina (Laura Morante) plan to celebrate the looming event at their Tuscan country home with a few close friends and family, but when the couple's daughter Rosa (Nina Torresi) shows up with her T.S. Eliot-quoting new boyfriend, who is Marcello's senior by decades, the "quiet" weekend goes berserk. In Italian with English subtitles.
