Cannes Film Review: ‘Like Crazy’

14 May 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Characters and dialogue are the key to Paolo Virzì’s terrific comedy-drama “Like Crazy,” a study of two very different women in a psychiatric institution that avoids practically every pitfall such a short synopsis may conjure. Boasting a deliriously loquacious script together with a rare understanding of how to balance certain Italian caricatures with a grounding sense of realism – a combination that’s truly Virzì’s forte – the film takes two psychologically damaged women, one a mythomaniac powerhouse and the other a fragile wreck, and makes them into a mutually supportive duo who surprisingly touch our emotions. Neither Valeria Bruni Tedeschi nor Micaela Ramazzotti have been better, and this tailor-made production looks set to be one of the few recent Italo comedies with serious chances for international success.

Villa Biondi is the Tuscan nut house for women where we first see Beatrice (Bruni Tedeschi), a non-stop chatterbox who superficially masters »
