A film in Italian with English subtitlesGenre: Romantic Comedy Director: Massimo VenierCast: Valentina Lodovini, Carolina Crescentini, Alessandro Tiberi, Francesca Inaudi, Francesco Mandelli Released: 2009Duration: 91 Minutes
In this entertaining and witty romantic comedy the heroes face the same dilemma as many Italian young professionals today: How to get by on a salary of just 1000 Euros a month?
Matteo (Alessandro Tiberi), a 30-year-old university graduate with a mathematics degree, works in the marketing department of a telecommunications company being ‘reorganized’. He lives in a flat he shares with his best friend Francesco, a PlayStation wizard and film buff.
Matteo’s career prospects seem to be looking up however with the arrival of new Assistant Marketing Director, the seductive Angelica (Carolina Crescentini), with whom he hits it off nicely. Then Beatrice (rising star Valentina Lodovini) moves into his apartment, much to the annoyance of Matteo, who can’t believe his best friend Francesco (Alessandro Tiberi), has broken their “no female roommates” policy! Together these two very different women draw Matteo into an endless series of trials and tribulations, offering him the possibility to trade in his dreams for financial comfort.
Based on the novel by Antonio Incorvaia and Alessandro Rimassa (which began as a hit online blog) 'The 1000-Euro Generation' is a comedy about life's many choices - personal and professional, financial and ethical - played out by likable characters that warmly mix ingenuity and optimism.
