It was love at first sight for happy couple Antonio and Paulo (Cristiano Caccamo and Salvatore Esposito). They live together peacefully in a Berlin apartment with their quirky and musical landlord Benedetta (Diana Del Bufalo). On the day of their engagement, their new roommate arrives, the depressed gender-fluid Donato (Dino Abbrescia), and they all embark on a journey to finally reveal their relationship to their families. Their first stop is the exquisite old Italian village Civita di Bagnoregio, where Antonio’s father Roberto (Diego Abatantuono) is the mayor and his mother Anna (Monica Guerritore), the headstrong matriarch. In a whirl of surreal chaos, Anna provides the couple with stringent conditions related to their wedding ceremony, and the group sets out on a quest to make a city founded on religious tradition understand that love is love.
Director Alessandro Genovesi‘s lively new comedy tackles social issues in a unique and unforgettable setting, with characters that are far from one-dimensional, and explores the obstacles that come with breaking traditions and gaining acceptance.
