WELCOME TO THE NORTH

(2012/Italy-directed by Luca Miniero)
Alberto and Mattia's marriages are in crisis. Silvia hates Milano because of the smog and accuses Alberto of thinking only of work and little of her. To rekindle their love she rents a mountain vacation house to spend romantic weekends. Unfortunately, Alberto is managing a pilot project for the Post Office that will keep him busy for a year, including Saturdays. Meanwhile, the always irresponsible Mattia lives with his wife Maria at his mother's home; he doesn't work much and is unable to pronouce the word "mortgage". Mattia ends up going to work in Milano with Alberto. The cultural crossed-wires of the Neapolitan Mattia with the Milano Alberto is disastrous, but slowly, the prejudices begin to fade. In Italian with English subtitles. Admission is free. (110 min.)
