Sara and Nicola are married and in love. They live happily with their young daughter Anna, but when Pietro arrives the family balance is shifted, bringing all sorts of tragicomic situations.

Outlandish grandparents, friends on the verge of a nervous breakdown and questionable nannies definitely do not help. Will they manage to handle this roller-coaster of glimpses of happiness and overwhelming moments or break up?


Figli by Giuseppe Bonito is the last film Mattia Torre wrote before he died. It is a bittersweet comedy about the joys and sorrows of being a parent in modern times in Italy. An absolutely brilliant and witty film starring acclaimed actors Valerio Mastandrea and Paola Cortellesi. In 2020, the movie won 3 Nastri D’Argento – Italy’s oldest film awards – for Best Comedy, Best Actor in a Comedy (Mastandrea) and Best Actress in a Comedy (Cortellesi).
