Italian comedy royalty reunite in Alessandro Genovesi’s hilarious new comedy about a father left in charge of his three children while mum goes away on a 10-day holiday… What could possibly go wrong?
Carlo (Fabio De Luigi, Put Nonna in the Freezer, LIFF18) and Giulia (Valentina Lodovini, Welcome to the South, LIFF11) are married with three children and a home life that functions seamlessly. That is because Giulia left work to devote all her time to the family allowing Carlo to be an absent father who is completely absorbed by his corporate job. Order turns to chaos when Giulia, tired and stressed out by home life, decides to treat herself to a ten-day holiday with her sister in Cuba and Carlo is forced to take on more responsibilities around the house. Hysterical arguments, disasters and near tragedies ensue. Genovesi’s entertaining new take on the eponymous Argentinian smash-hit brings an Italian sensibility and new laughs paired with de Luigi’s likeable comedic charm.
Born in Milan, Genovesi is an actor whose breakout came in 2007, with the play Happy Family, which he wrote and directed. Genovesi made his ﬁlm directorial debut in 2011 with The Worst Week of My Life, which was a box-office hit and spawned a sequel in 2013. He had further success with hit comedies Soap Opera
(LIFF15), What a Beautiful Surprise (LIFF15) and LIFF18 runaway hit My Big Gay Italian Wedding.
