Women Drive Me Crazy

[Pazze di me]

Country: Italy Year: 2013 Duration: 94 mins Language: Italian with English subtitles Genre Comedy Director: Fausto Brizzi Cast: Francesco Mandelli, Paola Minaccioni, Chiara Francini, Valeria Bilello

Fausto Brizzi, director of 2012 festival hit Love is in the Air, makes a triumphant return this year with yet another hilarious perspective on family, love and relationships. Andrea (Francesco Mandelli) lives as the sole male in a house of seven eccentric and overbearing women. Each female has a dominating characteristic, be it an intense hatred of men, a promiscuous tendency, or simple self-obsession. Their inconsiderate antics are the sole reason that, one by one, Andrea’s girlfriends are driven away from him.

When Andrea meets the lovely Giulia (Valeria Bilello), he decides to pretend he is an orphan in order to prevent her from ever meeting his family. But his façade does not hold up long, and even though she forgives him the disasters inevitably ensue, putting his relationship with her and all the other women in his life to the test. Andrea is left asking how he can possibly achieve a real relationship with his family as they are – will he be forced to choose between them and a girlfriend?

Awkward situations and ridiculous moments collide without respite in this riotous romp of one man battling the formidable women in his life.
