Marriage and Other Disasters (Matrimoni e altri disastri)

A lieto fine - Happy ending

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.

matrimoni posterThis 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.

Marriage and Other Disasters (Matrimoni e altri disastri) is a 2010 Italian comedy similar to the box-office hit, Bridget Jones. Neapolitan actress Nina Di Majo returns to the director's chair to bring us a light-hearted comedy that received two nominations for the prestigious Silver Ribbon Italian film award in 2010. Forty year-old Nanà runs a small bookstore in Florence. Despite thematrimoni interna constant nagging of her well-to-do family, she has no intention of making anything more of her life. Though secretly in love with Bauer, a self-centred novelist who takes advantage of her feelings to obtain small professional favours, she has pretty much given up on finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after. In fact, the unpleasant end to what she thought was the love of her life has left her allergic to the very idea of matrimony. Her younger sister Beatrice had the absurd idea of asking Nanà to organise her wedding. After an irresistible series of mishaps and plot twists, Nanà takes a good look at her own situation and decides to change it.
