Turkish-Italian director Ferzan Ozpetek screens again in Palm Springs with his this outrageous comedy about family disruption, love, and liberty. Tommaso (emerging star Riccardo Scamarcio, The Big Dream PSIFF 2010) is the youngest son of the Cantones, a large, traditional southern Italian family operating a pasta-making business since the 1960s. On a trip home from Rome, where he studies literature and lives with his boyfriend, Tommaso decides to tell his parents the truth about himself. But when he is finally ready to come out in front of the entire family, his older brother Antonio ruins his plans.

Set in Lecce, the beautiful Baroque town the Italians call the “Florence of the South,” this film marks a real change in Ozpetek’s filmmaking and writing. He abandons his usual melodramatic atmospheres and enters the genre of comedy, developing perfectly portrayed characters, from charming Tommaso to the drunk/nymphomaniac aunt and Tommaso’s gay Roman friends. In the end, all of them, it turns out, are nothing but loose cannons.
