Minnesota Premiere

Two very different families spend their summer holidays by the Italian seaside: the aristocratic Castelvecchio family is open-minded and eccentric, whereas The Petagna’s are close-knit, from a humbler background and united around ?rm family values.

Only the heads of families, Tony (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) and Carlo (Alessandro Gassmann) know what has brought them together. When an unexpected engagement is announced, the lives of all get disrupted and especially those of Penelope (Jasmine Trinca) and Sandro (Filippo Scicchitano), their respective firstborn children. What started as an ordinary summer, now becomes an emotional, chaotic and amusing journey.

DIRECTOR Simone Godano (Italy, 1977) studied cinema at DAMS (Drama, Art and Music Studies) in Rome and has been shooting his shorts since 2002.

In 2010 his short film Niente orchidee at the Venice Film Festival. In 2017, thanks to Matteo Rovere, his long-time collaborator, he made his feature film debut with Moglie e Marito which was nominated for Best Comedy at the Nastri d'Argento Awards. An Almost Ordinary Summer is his second film.
