Storyline

A group of Italians take a flight to Sweden - but among them there are the tourists, and the immigrants. Two bourgeois couples choose a typical Italian restaurant by its name, 'La Trattoria', and are disgusted by the poor service and its untidiness. An elegant lady in her splendid Ferrari is accosted by an Italian and imagines a flirt, but he's all eyes - for the car. An Italian wife finds the husband in bed with another woman, but he is so good with his explanation that she ends up believing it was all her fault for not being enough time with him...

Self-irony will save the world.
6 January 2014 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Brilliant cast, excellent director's work,and the social problems (career,family and cultural issues,immigration,etc.)viewed with a bit of irony and just humour (at times),make this film a real masterpiece not only of Italian , but of the world cinema.We all take ourselves too seriously and suffer a lot from that distorted-mirror reflection.The film just reminds us that nobody and nothing is perfect in our world, and we should take a more forgiving and understanding attitude to the faux pas of our fellow co-travellers on this planet. The film also shows the typical traits of an Italian national character, which is another advantage of this piece of cinematic art.
