SINOPSIS

Because of a trivial road accident, Ezio, the star-storyteller of this movie, is thrown into a sort of microcosm where parents may be wise but also nuttier than teens, mothers are neurotic but brave, grandmother are inevitably foolish, daughters are gorgeous and dogs are stubborn and in love. In short, two contemporary families which slip classifications and labels, and constantly evolve, in an unstable balance, alive, happy, bewildered. Happy Family is a disguised admission, a disguised diary, a play about fearing happiness, about the fear to turn to something we do not know. It is an exorcism written in Milan at summer, when not a leaf stirs and when what is normally unspoken comes out of the silence. All the wishes and fears. To be too much, of being none. Smiles, clashes and exciting encounters. Eyesores and imperfections watched ironically. Flaws which turn into poetry. And that is how the daily fear of living a half life, of being predictable is driven away. It is a comedy telling life as if it were a movie. Or, it is a movie telling life as if it were a comedy.
