Storyline

In Genoa, Agata runs her bookstore and, without meaning to, causes light bulbs and appliances to burn out. At the same time that a younger man declares his attraction to her, her brother Gustav, a morose architect, a distant husband, and an indifferent father, discovers that he was adopted and has a half-brother in the Po Valley. To Agata's great pain, she sees her young man with another woman - plus, Gustav cuts himself off from her and from his wife and son. Agata goes to the Po Valley, meets Gustav's brother and the brother's wife, and tries to reconnect by letting life wash over her. Wisdom comes from traditional Chinese medicine and from good literature. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Funny Italian Comedy
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another www.filmmovement.com movie, that was nominated for 8 Italian version of the Oscars. Like the others, it was released at the theaters and on DVD at the same time. Like the other two Film Movement movies I've seen, quality is the name of the game. And "Agata" is no exception. The story is a quirky comedy about life changing events that happen between two families, when a man finds out he has a different Mother than what he's known all these years. This revelation cause him to make a big turn in his life, get to know his new relatives, while dealing with the relatives he thought were his. This all leads to one big family that is far from normal, so to speak. Agata is his sister, a single woman who runs a book store, and has a much younger guy who says he's in love with her. Big problem, the guy is married. Also Agata has a problem with light bulbs. Whenever she is close to a light bulb it blows out. A rather novel approach to a comedy with many characters, and a lot of fun for the viewer. Good movie, highly recommended.
