What makes a relationship successful? Latin scholar Guido (Luca Marinelli) comes home every morning from his job as a night porter at a fancy hotel to wake his girlfriend Antonia (Thony). He tells her about the saints over breakfast, she goes to her job as a car rental clerk. At night she sings in bars. This loving couple is tested when Antonia tries to become pregnant and it's not as easy as they expect. Every Blessed Day showcases the beauty of its Italian setting while exploring universal situations like the possibilities of parenthood and how we relate to our families. Along the way we visit the pope's gynecologist and learn about the unusual requests a night porter receives on the job. A colorful cast of characters accompany the lovers as they try to find their way through their difficulties, making this a movie that is as funny as it is thoughtful.
