Multi-award-winning Italo-Turkish director Ferzan Ozpetek, (FACING WINDOWS, THE IGNORANT FAIRIES) explores the relationships between a group of friends in this moving ensemble piece, a true highlight of the festival.

A group of friends meet up for dinner. The hosts of these regular gatherings are the dynamic Lorenzo and his life partner, the successful writer Davide. They happily spend their time with a circle of intimates: Antonio (Stefano Accorsi) and Angelica (Margherita Buy), a married couple with kids; sunny cokehead Roberta (Ambra Angiolini); Davide's acerbic ex Sergio (Ennio Fantastichini) and equally biting friend Neval (Serra Yilmaz) and her policeman husband (Filippo Timi); and newcomer Paolo (Michelangelo Tommaso).

Ozpetek, always the brilliant group portrait artist, brings his characters masterfully towards a critical moment when they're forced to cast off their stiffened masks and to return to the very essence of the friendship that unites them.

Winner of the David di Donatello Award 2007 for Best Supporting Actress - Ambra Angiolini
