Director: Sophie Letourneur

91 mins, France, 2023, Digital, Subtitled, F-Rated

Parisian couple Sophie and Jean-Fi, exhausted from the routine of daily life, take a holiday in Sicily, leaving their young boy Raoul with his grandparents. Just before they go, Jean-Fi twists his ankle – not ideal for climbing Stromboli. Writer-director Sophie Letourneur acts beside music star Philippe Katerine in a witty, wonderful romantic comedy. With brilliant dialogue, the duo sparkle together in a film with scenes which are by turns hilarious, inventive, intimate, and full of tenderness. Tacky hotels, scooters, bars and beaches, mixed in with SMS messages about bin collection and a nod to Rossellini’s Journey to Italy, this is a pure delight.

The screening on Thursday 16th is followed by a post-screening Q&A with director Sophie Letourneur, hosted by Jo Mangan. Read more about Sophie and Jo here.

The screening on Thursday 16th is now SOLD OUT. Limited tickets remain for the additional screening on Saturday 25th.
