First, let me say that I rate Paolo Virzi's "Ovosodo" as one of the best Italian movies of the last 30 years.
The soundtrack (i guess they're all written and sung by the actress Thony) is really warm and beautiful, arguably the best part of the movie, and now and then you get some of hints of the great and funny Virzì's style.
That said, it's the same old universal story: a couple struggling with some problem. And you we get the usual average Italian actors, nice, funny and OK but you can always tell that they are acting. And that's no good acting.
I guess You can skip this one...
