Nanni, a renowned director, is working on a musical when suddenly he has a change of heart and cancels the film on the first shooting day. He has a new idea, making a documentary about the Italian national elections, but work isn’t going very fast, much to the frustration of the crew. Nanni can’t stop thinking, worrying and getting excited about the birth and early days of life of his newborn son, yet is torn by his sense of obligation to make the documentary.
User Reviews: Aprile (1988)
I enjoyed this film as much as Caro Diario. I thought it was hilarious, although Nanni Moretti’s humour is so deadpan I suspect some people may watch this film without realising that it’s supposed to be funny. Also, as someone who is interested in Italian politics but finds it confusing, I found the political parts quite interesting. Still, the film is not really about Italian politics, it’s about Nanni Moretti.
