Storyline

New year's eve at "The Islands" condos. An aging countess's party is crashed by the soccer team from her gigolo's town. While dressing for a dinner party, the wealthy Guilia discovers her husband's affair with her best friend and vows revenge. Next door, a family prepares their vintage Dodge for a drive through the streets. A call girl ties up a lawyer while, unbeknownst to him, three men await the right moment to break into his office. Across the hall, a woman downs pills in a lonely suicide attempt. Two young men hide out in a bedroom smoking dope; one of them has some dynamite. As midnight approaches, each group draws closer to grotesque tragedy. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The most lunatic, bizarre, craziest (and funniest) New Year's Eve, EVER!
1 March 2008 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

What a crazy and funny comedy! It's almost lunatic its humor I must say! L'ULTIMO CAPODANNO fits perfectly in the traditional genre of the "comedia all'italiana", because it's so crazy, so silly, so burlesque, but so funny though, that I think it can be fairly compared to some classics of that genre!

The plot is set on a New Year's Eve, in some Rome's suburban neighborhood, and it crosses different stories and characters. It's all passed on a few hours, but the incidents are so many and so abnormal that it was, for sure, the longest and weirdest New Year's Eve, ever!

The acting in this kind of comedies is essential to achieve success, and in this particular case I think it did it, because it's great, in the traditional, expansive, clamorous and hilarious Italian way. Monica Bellucci is the most famous actress of this cast, but her performance wasn't too different from other actors. I think they all did an excellent job.

When I chose to watch this movie I was expecting something funny and entertaining, but nothing compared to this hilarious and burlesque comedy! It's great, a truly "comedia all'italiana"!
