The story of a young mother (Jasmine Trinca) with a failed marriage behind her, who fights daily for her dream to open a hair salon, challenging her fate in an effort to free herself and gain independence and right to happiness.
Ministers from the G8 countries meet in Germany to decide on a secret plan affecting many countries. IMF director Roché has invited a monk for his confession. Roché's later found dead. Is it murder or suicide? Did he reveal the plan?
Conventional comedy where it's a surprise to find white bearded Servillo doing Woody Allen. He's a Jewish psychoanalyst who is too mean to pay for a divorce from his appealing ex wife still living in the next flat and doing his laundry, in the block where the Observant neighbor leaves the lift door open on Sundays to avoid breaking shabbat, infuriating Tony. His patients, including Giacomo of Aldo, Giacomo and Giovanni fame, keep on turning up in the film's developments.
Tony's doctor tells him he needs to get into shape. In the gym Tony runs into sex pot Echegui running her jazzacise class and she convinces him he needs her as a personal trainer - predictable jokes.
Her whacked out sex life intrudes, with her black son setting fires, including one on Tony's jacket. Turnsout she is working Tony as part of the scheme where her psycho prisoner boy friend Marinelli wants to be hypnotised into remembering where he placed the jewel store robbery loot we saw him pace out and bury at the start of the film.
The piece is nicely made and bright enough, mixing Jewish jokes, shrink jokes and slapstick crook comedy but we've been there before an hoped they'd come up with a better vehicle for Servillo.
