Blessed Madness
Comedy, Italian Style
Da non perdere perché è il 26esimo film da regista/sceneggiatore di Carlo Verdone che corona cosi 40 anni di carriera.

With more than 1.3 million admissions at the Italian box office, Blessed Madness is the latest hit comedy from Carlo Verdone, the much loved Roman actor and director who is considered a modern-day Alberto Sordi.

Carlo Verdone plays Guglielmo, the owner of a religious items shop who just got dumped by his wife Lidia (Lucrezia Lante della Rovere, Quantum of Solace 2008). Depressed and unable to enjoy anything else in life, he gets his daily routine turned upside down by his new employee, the very brazen and overwhelming Luna (newcomer Ilenia Pastorelli). When she convinces him to sign up to a dating app to forget about Lidia, Guglielmo embarks on an incredible series of absurd dates and out of this world situations!

From North to South, the ironic, humorous style of the Roman director has made him a symbol of Italian comedy. A must-see for fans of the director.
