  • PERFETTI SCONOSCIUTI (PERFECT STRANGERS)
  • Italy: 2016
  • Cert: 15 / 1 hour 37 minutes
  • Director: Paulo Genovese

Not predictably in my Top 5 Films of all time – chances are you will have already seen some of those: ‘The Notebook’, ‘Shine’, ‘A Beautiful Life’. For starters, with ‘Perfect Strangers’, you get to listen to the Italian Language for a couple of hours and even if your understanding of it is as limited as mine, it is a pleasure all the same. A little more than that, ‘Perfect Strangers’ pretty much sums up how connected we are to our dreaded mobile devices, albeit done in a very entertaining and fun way. Give it a go: it won’t disappoint!
