Cuckoo's Nest with jobs
23 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this last month at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 36 films I saw there this would be in my top two. I loved this movie! Nello (Claudio Bisio) is an out of work former trade unionist who has been sent to run a cooperative of mental patients who were released from Italy's psychiatric hospitals when the government closed the hospitals down under the 1980's Basaglia Law. Nello doesn't like the over medicated clients way of life at the cooperative and he seeks to find a more beneficial life for them and possibly learn a profession to suit their capabilities. By chance, two of the clients Gigio (Andrea Bosca) and Luca (Giovanni Calcagno) show an unusual and individualistic and artistic aptitude for installing parquet flooring. This leads to the rest of the former patients at the co-op forming a flooring company with high end clientèle and Nello coordinating the operation by assigning work roles within the company that suits each worker the best. Yes, this is kind of like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest except that they have jobs but it's still clever, fresh and one of the funniest films I have ever seen. The cast is fantastic. Character development begins immediately when we are introduced individually and collectively to the patients who make up a fantastic ensemble cast that continue to grow throughout the film. Writer/director Giulio Manfredonia co-wrote the story and screenplay with Fabiio Bonifacci and the cast and crew must have had a great time putting this together. I understand this was a big box office hit in Italy and I hope it gets a worldwide audience. Great characters, great actors, great story, great production. I would give this a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend it.
