MATRIMONI E ALTRI DISASTRI
Join us for a wonderful evening of culture and film. Each month we will feature the very best of Italian Cinema here at Casula Powerhouse. In 2020 we ran this series online and we are now pleased to announce we are able to come together in-person to enjoy the films. The films are FREE but please book your ticket online.
The film is in Italian and will have English subtitles.
Matrimoni e altri disastri is a 2010 Italian comedy similar to the box-office hit, Bridget Jones. Neapolitan actress Nina Di Majo returns to the director's chair to bring us a lighthearted comedy that received two nominations for the prestigious Silver Ribbon Italian film award in 2010. This film was extremely well-received at its premiere weekend.
Forty year-old Nanà runs a small bookstore in Florence. Despite the constant nagging of her well-to-do family, she has no intention of making anything more of her life.
Though secretly in love with Bauer, a self-centred novelist who takes advantage of her feelings to obtain small professional favours, she has pretty much given up on finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after. In fact, the unpleasant end to what she thought was the love of her life has left her allergic to the very idea of matrimony.
Her younger sister Beatrice had the absurd idea of asking Nanà to organise her wedding. After an irresistible series of mishaps and plot twists, Nanà takes a good look at her own situation and decides to change it.
