Film Synopsis: Like A Cat On a Highway (Come un gatto in tangenziale)
Giovanni and Monica are the two most diverse people on the face of the earth. He is an intellectual and a social integrationist living in the center of Rome, while she is poor and a former cashier of a supermarket, dealing every day with the real problematic environment of her suburban neighborhood. They would never have met if their children had not fallen in love. They do have a common goal though: to end the love relationship their children have, that they believe has the life expectations of a “cat on a highway. Brilliant acting by Italian film star Paola Cortellesi rounds out this delightful comedy.
