Paolo Virzì’s newest features two big stars who play mental patients on the loose.
Beatrice Morandini Valdirana (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) is a big talking and (so she says) countess who claims to be on a first name basis with the rich and famous.
Donatella Morelli (Micaela Ramazzotti) is fragile, quiet, and keeping a painful secret.
Both are being held in custody, patients in a women’s mental institution where an unlikely but wacky and touching friendship is formed.
After the huge success of Il Capitale Umano (Human Capital), director Paolo Virzì with cinematographer Vladan Radovic (Anime Nere, Virgine Giurata) brings us the new comedy, La Pazza Gioa (Like Crazy).
