An excellent Italian film, which is especially surprising since the story premise is hardly original.
Mattia has never come out to his family and only to a few others. He is about to leave for Spain for a new job and to live with his Spanish boyfriend, Eduard, who is under the impression that Mattia's family knows that he's gay and that they know about Eduard.
Eduard then makes a surprise announcement that he's coming to Italy to meet Mattia's family before he and Mattia travel back to Spain together. Much of what happens is fairly predictable, but a wonderful cast of actors & characters and, for the most part, an excellent script/dialogue make it a thoroughly enjoyable movie. More than a few laughs and even a couple of teary moments.
Even if you feel put off by the "storyline" which makes it seem like a rehash of some sitcom you've seen before, it is well worth watching.
