Movie Details

An off-beat, entertaining comedy about a married couples' ennui, this story has a special Italian flavor that others can savor as well. A husband and his wife (Riccardo Pazzaglia, also the director, and Simona Marchini) have become completely bored with each other after many, many routine years of marriage and raising their teenage son. They would like to get a divorce, but can't afford to pay rent separately, so their lawyers create a solution to their problem. They are to divide everything in the house in half, from the bed to the refrigerator, and live as though they really were separate. The headboard of the bed is sawed in half, the food in the fridge is divided, and so life apart but together begins. Problems constantly arise, until the two are forced to rethink and retrench. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
