EX (A lieto fine - Happy ending)



EX (A lieto fine - Happy ending)

logo casulaCasula Powerhouse Arts Centre

2021 marks the 7th consecutive year of the Italian Cultural Institute’s fruitful collaboration with the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, i.e. the cultural hub of the Liverpool City Council. A collaboration that is expressed with the organization of the screening of movies focussing on contemporary Italian productions.

This year’s movie series is called A lieto fine - Happy ending, with a clear reference to the choice of "light" feature films, not particularly challenging, which want to herald a gradual resumption of all economic and cultural activities, which have unavoidably slowed down and/or have been confined to private settings due to the Covid pandemic, which finally seems to be slowing down its impact on the social life of the population.

EX (Fausto Brizzi, 2009, 120’)

Starring: Claudio Bisio, Silvio Orlando, Alessandro Gassman, Claudia Gerini

Ex is a choral comedy made up of several episodes, all centred on past relationships. Around 20 characters find themselvesex interna struggling with the return of former lover, as if they had never completely left. They suddenly reappear and somehow manage to upset the life of their ex-partner. Some of the characters are about to divorce and have to share the custody of the children, some others have been divorced for years and still feel resentment and anger towards their previous partner. Then there are those who, despite the passing of the years, still feel something for their ex-partner and cause violent crises of jealousy when they spot their ex with a new lover. There are also former friends and those who are too embarrassed to admit that they still have feelings for each other. All the couples will eventually find themselves involved in misunderstandings, twists of fate, triangles and choices driven by regret, which will lead all of them to an unsavoury truth: Who you are today is also your ex’s fault or merit.
