Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Co-writer and director Massimo Troisi also stars in this comedy about Vicenzo, a young man living at home (in Naples) with his mother and his sister and her family and having to face the prospect of assuming more responsibility if he wants to keep his relationship with Anna (Giuliana De Sio). Vicenzo met Anna at a party and the two began an affair that is threatened when Anna is offered a job in Perugia, in central Italy. Depending on Vicenzo's response, Anna will either leave or stay. Troisi is an imposing comic presence that carries this film through episodes of dense Neapolitan dialogue.
