I promessi sposi

The Betrothed
Massimo D'Anolfi, Martina Parenti
2007, Italy, 73′
Atelier Massimo D'Anolfi & Martina Parenti

Couples prepare for their imminent weddings. Municipal employees listen to their statements and their intentions. A provincial priest gives a prenuptial lesson, speaking of faith and science, spirituality and sexuality. A documentary in the form of a comedy, which is also an interesting portrait of Italy, shared, as always, between the rules of the State and the dogmas of the Church.
