Matrimoni e altri disastri (Weddings and Other Disasters)
dir. Nina Di Majo
Italy, 2010, 102 minutes
Italian, with English sub-titles
When Beatrice has to go on a business trip just before her wedding, her single, independent sister, Nana, gets thrust into the role of wedding planner with her soon-to-be brother-in-law, Alessandro. One-night stands begin, family secrets are revealed, dim-witted priests appear, and playful sexual-tension between sister and brother- in-law starts to develop. Things go from bad to worse to bad again to worse still, with hilarious results in this romantic comedy, Italian style.
