Benvenutti al Sud (Welcome to the South)
on 28 February 2012
I bought Benvenutti al Sud after seeing it at a small Italian Film Festival at the Phoenix cinema East Finchley. It is one of the wittiest and entertaining films, and I loved it because it is about life, no shooting or killing. The main character is a man who works at the Post Office in Milan, and as his contract is coming to an end, he desperately tries to extend it and stay in Milan. Well he doesn't and he is sent to a small town south of Naples.
What the film is trying to show us is the difference between the north and the south, to start with the language, then their way of life and the attitude of the southern Italians towards life. The script is great and the actors are superb. One comes out of the cinema with a new energy to face life. I think that if anybody who is depressed should watch this movie instead of taking anti-depressants. It is beautifully hilarious!
