Irene has entered her forties and has no husband, no children, and a job many people dream of: she’s the “surprise guest”, the much-feared client who arrives in incognito to make a note of, assess, and judge the standards of luxury hotels. In addition to her job, in her life are her sister Silvia, married with children, somewhat hare-brained and always in a rush, and her former fiancé Andrea. Irene has no desire whatsoever for stability: she feels free and privileged.
But is this real freedom? Something will happen that will cause her certainty to waver...
After The Ignorant Fairies and Saturn in Opposition, Margherita Buy and Stefano Accorsi are back together again, directed here by Maria Sole Tognazzi in a film focusing on a new female character as she copes with love, friendship, work, family, and the doubt that her freedom borders on solitude.
