A provocative, sassy and energetic exploration of the war between the sexes, this new film from Italy’s breakout commercial comedy director tells its tales with outrageous edge, yet never loses a sense of where the heart truly lies. Director Fausto Brizzi made a spectacular directorial debut in 2006 with Notte Primi Degli Esami, the most successful feature by a first-time director in Italian movie history. His most recent picture Ex was nominated for ten Donatello Awards and won the Silver Ribbon for Best Comedy in Italy. MASCHI CONTRO FEMMINE showcases his ability to present the hilarious consequences of the war between the sexes without ever losing touch with the heart of the matter. This mature but daring look at the physical and emotional effects of sexual attraction is a fiercely anticipated ensemble comedy that bridges the gap between class, culture, and wealth by speaking the universal language of desire. Love is a battlefield in this movie, but the eternal struggle turns out to be one that both sides can win. In the grand tradition of classic movies like Divorce Italian Style and One Last Kiss, MASCHI CONTRO FEMMINE is both biting and intoxicating – a satire fueled by delight rather than despair.
