8 October 2007 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of catching this film while aboard an Alitalia flight when flying home from Italy. It's got a great central cast and the situations are genuinely funny. Not overly done and the slapstick is kept to a bare minimum. Really, it reminded me of a 30s screwball comedy in many ways - with the humor coming from the characterizations and how each character reacts within the situations they've created for themselves. It all works like clockwork - but also has some interesting things to say about the choices we make in our lives - and maybe making decisions that decide our futures too soon.

I'm surprised this movie hasn't been released on DVD - it's probably got roughly the same appeal as a film such as "Pane e Tulipani" - and is certainly better than many of the films coming out of Italy (and many other countries) that are released on DVD.
