Pieraccioni’s happy at last
Shooting started yesterday at the Forte Village Resort in Cagliari (Sardinia) on Leonardo Pieraccioni’s new film, Finalmente la Felicità (“Happiness At Last”). Two years after Me and Marilyn [+see also:
film profile], the king of Tuscan humour is back behind the camera with a comedy produced by Levante, in collaboration with Medusa Film.
As always, Pieraccioni stars, alongside model-actress Ariadna Romero, Rocco Papaleo and Thyago Alves. Other cast members include Andrea Buscemi, Shel Shapiro, Michela Andreozzi and Maurizio Battista.
Co-written by the director and Giovanni Veronesi (The Manual of Love), Finalmente la Felicità centres on music teacher Lucca (Pieraccioni) who discovers that his recently-deceased mum was a long-distance adoptive parent to a little Brazilian girl. Now the girl, who has grown into a beautiful model, is in Italy and wants to meet her Italian "brother".
The clash between the different cultures give rise to hilarious situations and dramatic twists. But if fate has brought these two together, there must be a reason.
Shooting on Finalmente la Felicità will last eight weeks in total: three in Sardinia, four in Lucca and one in Rome. The film will be released in theatres at Christmas time by Medusa Film.
