Stay Away From Me Play Trailer

Jacopo has a serious problem. He may be a brilliant marriage guidance counsellor, but he can never manage to have a steady relationship for more than two weeks. And for good reason: since he was very young, Jacopo has been cursed and brought bad luck to every woman who has fallen in love with him. Really bad luck. Because of this, he has vowed to stay away from women, for their own good. But the moment he lays eyes on Sara at a friend’s birthday party, he is smitten.

Despite his resistance, the two fall head over heels leading to back-to-back, laugh-out-loud moments of disaster! Sara will quickly learn the consequences of her choice as the limits of her love are put to the test in this smart, stylish and very loveable romantic comedy.

The Mafia Kills Only in Summer Play Trailer

Highlighting the Cosa Nostra pernicious influence over average Sicilians, we follow Everyman Arturo from childhood to maturity, as he deals with life, love, and the mafia. The Palermo of the 1970s and early ’80s is wonderfully captured as a city where denial goes hand-in-hand with stifled tolerance, as a bloody war for Mafia supremacy rages, with regular assassinations of rival mobsters and anti-Mafia crusaders.

The Taste of You Play Trailer

The mosaic of characters features a new generation of attractive Italian young adults discover love for the first time – some easily, while others struggle for the attention of the opposite sex. Meanwhile, the older counterparts find it difficult to maintain loyalty to their own partners.

Unexpected interactions turn into long-term commitments, but not without a generous dose of drama and temptation. This soapy romcom is injected with the spirit of 80s era beach holidays, and is a playful spin on the concept of love and destiny.

University: More Than Friends Play Trailer

While attending university, Carlo, an aspiring director, shares a disused medical warehouse on the outskirts of Rome with Alessandro, a wannabe comedian studying medicine, and Faraz an Iranian-student.

Living among boys is easy, each of them with their own mess, unregimented lifestyle, and unique “method of study.” The male universe in which they live, however, is about to be invaded by women. Giorgia is independent and receives little attention from her parents; Francesca is in a doomed relationship with an older professor, while Emma wants to be a famous performer. In this new mixed arrangement house, each character finds their place as they establish a confusing, but fun and tumultuous extended family – a family which none of them has ever truly had.

Zoran, My Nephew the Idiot Play Trailer

A forty something loser, Paolo spends his days in a dead end job and nights drinking vast quantities of local wine. He clearly hasn’t moved on since his marriage fell apart, though he loses few opportunities to take advantage of the good will of his ex’s new hubby, Alfio. News of the death of an aunt across the border brings visions of a juicy inheritance. Instead, all he receives is her ashes, a porcelain dog and his nephew Zoran, a nerdy 16 year-old. Paolo is not happy – until he witnesses Zoran’s talents for darts. Sensing an opportunity to cash in, he hustles a local darts club and makes plans for the World Championships.
