Noi e la Giulia (The Legendary Giulia and Other Miracles)
Comedy, 2015, 115 mins
Director: Edoardo Leo
Diego, Fausto, and Claudio are three men who can't seem to catch a break. Hoping to reserve their fortunes, our heroes meet accidentally at a country home in Campania that each hopes to turn into a Bed and Breakfast. Pooling their resources, and reluctantly taking on another "investor" (a former Communist revolutionary to whom Fausto owes money), they work and struggle to keep their business afloat, when they run afoul of the local Mafia. Kidnapping, wine tasting, true love, and the magical Alfa Romeo of the title all combine with a winning cast and a shamelessly optimistic story that will leave you smiling.
In Italian with English subtitles.
