Storyline

Marcello is a successful architect, a husband and a distracted father (too) friendly. Marina is a psychologist maladjusted, wife and mother restrained 'eco-solidarity'. Rosa is in the middle, high school nerd seventeen and irreducible. Armando, an elderly man and neatly into a tweed jacket, invited him into his country estate, decided to test their progressive ideas. Armed with wisdom and full knowledge of himself and of his age, the senile boyfriend Marcello Rosa force and Navy to review their relationship and their conduct in life. In an extraordinary weekend of madness, besieged by a chorus of friends on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Sinibaldi spouses and young children will give a slap to conformity, trying to live a more authentic life.

Great, if you either mature enough or immature enough
13 July 2011 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

This is a crazy but at the same time very profound movie disguised in a randomly messy human relationship and hardship of life, dealing with emptiness, growing pain, poppy love, aging pressure, phony love life and relationship, parenthood, friendship, aging worries, and all the related families that have to interweave, intervene, to be acted upon, to pretend, unavoidable not to participate in a lot of group activities nobody really enjoyed. Parents and their children, best friends and their families, marriage failures and marital crisis. There are lot of things could happen and explode, blowing out of the water and turn ugly without warning. The relationship among husbands and wives, parents and children, friends, are actually all based upon a very fragile, very unpredictable foundation. The screenplay is great, the directing very liberal, the performances of all the actors are flawless. Thanks to a very good casting job. This Italian movie is a modern day Fellini's "8-1/2 (1963)" and "La Dolce Vita (1960)" in colors; this kind of movies could only be made out of Italy.
