(Italiensk for begyndere)
Must-See Cinema! Travel to Venice with a group of Danes!
Set in a small Danish town, Italian For Beginners focuses on six characters whose lives have fallen in such despair that their only source of continued happiness is a weekly Italian class they share.
Largely due to a talented cast and Scherfig’s nuanced script, Italian For Beginners actually makes loss and loneliness fun, while turning romantic comedy conventions on their ear. A compelling, free-flowing romantic comedy, Italian For Beginners is for any incurable romantic who can take a little salt and pepper with that sugar.
