Michele, abandoned by his wife, lives with his son in a tiny apartment in Rome. His friends are all he has left, among which Fabio, who persuades Michele and the rest of the gang to put on a play.
If you only know Palme d’Or winner The Son’s Room, Nanni Moretti’s early comedies will be a special treat. Shot on Super 8, this debut feature already boasts a perfect balance between autobiography, social commentary and satire, launching what would become the Moretti touch.
