Made in Italy


Made in Italy
A Bohemian London artist returns to Italy with his estranged son, to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once-beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair. Renovations go badly, with father and son soon finding themselves at odds. Dad’s comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colourful locals, including the no-nonsense ex-pat making her living selling villas, who quickly captures his attention. For the son, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. He soon falls for a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria, until the pair finds their developing relationship in jeopardy from her jealous and threatening ex-husband. As father and son painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.

Sandie Angulo Chen quote iconPoignant father-son dramedy has strong language.

Jim Judy quote iconDespite the two being all too familiar with the real-life loss of their mother and wife, the fictitious portrayal here feels melodramatic and forced rather than natural and heartbreaking turned heartwarming. Not horrible but needing its own dose of fixing up.
