Refreshingly real, ONE OUT OF TWO furthers Cappuccio's reputation for realistically depicting contemporary Italian life in this touching chronicle of a one man's emotional rebirth.

Lorenzo (Fabio Volo) has everything: a successful career in law, a beautiful girlfriend (Anita Caprioli) and a magnificent apartment overlooking Genoa's harbour. He is on the cusp of securing a business deal that will make him a wealthy man when he one day faints and is rushed to hospital where he wakes to discover that he has a malignant brain tumour. For a high flying lawyer who pulled himself up from working-class roots, illness was not in Lorenzo's plans and lying back and waiting for the test results is made more difficult, with everyone treating him like a delicate time bomb. Lorenzo can only relate to his hospital roommate, Giovanni, a Roman truck driver who seems to understand Lorenzo better than he ever understood himself.

The character of Giovanni is marvellously played by onetime Pasolini regular, Ninetto Davoli, who won the Best Italian Actor Award at the Rome Film Festival 2006 for his performance in this film.
