Join us live on Sunday for our SDIFF Online Monthly Series Discussing for Figli (Kidz)
Important: You will receive an email* on Sunday, July 26 by 9:00 AM with information on how to access the discussion.
This sharp comedy revolves around a very simple subject: having children in Italy today. Or rather, having a second child, to be more specific. Sara (Paola Cortellesi) and Nicola (Valerio Mastandrea) are a happy couple. She’s a restaurant health inspector, he runs a fishmonger’s; they pay their bills and they have a quiet six-year-old daughter whom they bring along to dinners with friends. The balance in their lives is disrupted, however, by the arrival of their second child. In this case, “1 plus 1 doesn’t make 2, it makes 11.” Their love, of course, multiplies, but so does their fatigue. Sleepless nights, crying around the clock, selfish grandparents and unlikely babysitters all combine to transform the couple’s life into a living hell, while commitments relating to their firstborn become increasingly pressing. Tragicomic scenarios ensue.
Join us for a live discussion with Giuseppe Bonito, Director of the film, on Sunday, June 26th at 11:00 AM.
