Storyline

Gaetano, a young Neapolitan, decides to leave home, work and friends, to look for other moments of life and meet other people. He goes to Florence, to his aunt's home. In a clinic, where he goes by chance, he meets Martha and falls in love with her. After a series of funny situations (an old friend from the relentless chatter coming from Naples and the mature aunt and her elderly lover, a young American priest who wants to involve him in his visits to evangelical force, the encounter with Riccardino, a young man frustrated by an oppressive mother and the father waiting for the miracle of re-growth of an amputated hand, etc.) Gaetano decides to stay in Florence and to act as father to Martha's incoming son, even if the girl does not want to disclose the exact name of the father .

User Reviews

A wonderful representation of Italians, Italy and the difference inside it
20 August 2014 | by davidemaurielloSee all my reviews

If you like to visit Italy, this movie it's a good way to meet and knowing better Italians. Through the eyes of Gaetano, you'll be catapulted in a strong reality for an Napolitan guy in North of Italy, where a shy guy try to beat his frenzy and insecurity. Gaetano leaves Naples to go to Florence and there he tries to build a new existence, far away from the South Italian's stereotype. Of course, this will be impossible! Gaetano is inadvertently funny, people laughs with him out of his intention. His vision of the religion it's something unique for the timing of the movie and for the South of Italy. Gaetano it a simply guy, and everyone of us could be him.
