Synopsis

I cannot imagine a more prestigious ensemble cast in contemporary Italian cinema, all depicting one colourful family. The occasion is the 50th wedding anniversary celebration of the grandparents of a large Southern Italian family. Parents, children, cousins, brothers, aunties, uncles and in-laws gather on the gorgeous island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples. Great laughs, family sing-alongs, wonderful meals and burgeoning romances soon begin to reveal hidden complex layers. As bad weather traps them on the island, the fun begins to give way to ancient, unresolved tensions and new dramatic undercurrents.

Director, Gabriele Muccino (Perfect Strangers CIF17), is certainly one of the most exciting Directors in Italian cinema right now. Muccino’s balance of this impressive ensemble is delicate, effortless and deftly handled. Entertaining, intelligent and gorgeous.

An enviable assemblage of Italy’s finest talent including Pierfrancesco Favino (The Confessions, Wife & Husband), Stefano Accorsi (Italian Race), and screen icon Stefania Sandrelli (The Conformist).
