Italian For Beginners on DVD
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Italian For Beginners is a romantic comedy from Denmark (and filmed in the Dogme style) in which a group of thirty-something misfits find their lives intertwined through their Italian classes. A recently widowed minister takes up a temporary post in a suburban church, where the congregation is three and his predecessor heckles during his sermons. Meanwhile, an already harassed hotel clerk is given the job of firing his hot-headed best friend, a hairdresser who can't cut hair without being interrupted by her alcoholic mother and the girl in the bakery who keeps dropping the cakes. Beautiful performances and an improvised script create this fresh, moving and uplifting portrait of people finding love, friendship and community far away from traditional family ties.
