Italy | 2017 | 98 minutes | Francesco Amato

Screenwriter Francesco Bruni scheduled to attend.
Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty) stars as Dr. Elia Venezia, a psychoanalyst who lives a comfortable and rather self-centred existence, until a spell of illness forces him to the doctor. Instructed to lose some weight, he befriends a vivacious Spanish personal trainer, Claudia, a single mother with an unhinged criminal ex-boyfriend. As Claudia drags Elia around Rome, a series of mishaps ensue, breathing new energy into his tired and predictable life.
