Director Pif's At War for Love is a prequel of sorts to his earlier hit comedy The Mafia Only Kills in Summer. In At War for Love we are in 1943 New York, Arturo and Flora are in love, but an arrangement has been made for her to marry the son of a New York Mafia figure. The only way to stop the marriage is for Arturo to go to Sicily and ask flora's father fo rher hand. To pay his way to Sicily, Arturo enlists in the U.S. Army and ends up in the Allied invasion of Italy. Pif has an instinct for stories that have an acute sense of irony, and often silly comedy and yet very clever in his reading of history.
