Scanio Libertetti, a failed engineer but genius inventor who earns a living repairing coffee machines, attends a traffic school course in a small provincial town in the hills of Northern Italy.

When asked to explain the circumstances that led to his speeding fine, he rewinds a little too far... launching into a story as long as a film about his life over the past year. Enter the childhood friends who are always so ready to criticise him, the uncle who's constantly encouraging him to sort his life out, and the reassuring presence of Helena, a young English girl who's recently moved to Italy and seems to be the only person who understands him. For a while, at least.


“For those who miss Woody Allen's early funny films.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“One of the best debut in recent years. A breath of fresh air for Italian cinema.” -
