This is my favourite of the festival, partly because I can relate to the theme of a difficult son and his relationship with his father.  This a relevant comedy adapted from the book by Michele Serra, where parents are separated and adults have difficulty relating less controlling their teenage children.  

The father is Giorgio (Claudio Bisio) also called ‘Past his due date’ by the son and ‘loser’ by his son’s friends, a highly respected TV presenter.  When the film opens, Giorgio has custody for the next few days of 17-year old son, Tito (Gaddo Bacchini) who with his friends invade the father’s home spilling yogurt and  smoking up in the room.
