La Pazza Gioia
Beatrice is a blabbermouth and a so-called billionaire countess who likes to believe she’s in intimacy with world leaders. Donatella is a young quiet tattooed woman, locked in her own mystery. They are both patients of a mental institution and subject to custodial measures.
Paolo Virzì’s new film tells the story of their unpredictable friendship and their escape from the treatment constraints that will become an hilarious and moving adventure of two technically insane creatures, looking for a bit of fun and love in this open-air nuthouse, the world of healthy people.
Italian writer, director, and producer, Paolo Virzì made his directing debut in 1994 with Living It Up which was presented at the Venice Film Festival. Among his film credits, Hardboiled Egg (1997) won the Grand Special Jury prize at the Venice Film Festival.
