Where am I Going?

Friday 13 January 03:00 PM
Friday 27 January 07:00 PM
Run time: 86 min

Italian | Subtitled | Comedy

A not-so-subtle dig at the Italian obsession of pursuing a cush job-for-life in the public service, with its generous pension and seeming impossibility of termination.

Co-writer Luca Medici stars as his much-celebrated comic character, Checco Zalone, a middle-aged slacker from Southern Italy who, thanks to the help of his father, is one of the privileged few with such a post. But change is in the air, and with a new reformist government vowing to cut down on bureaucracy, Checco is forced to go to great lengths to hold onto his pen-pushing role, sticking it out even if it means being sent to the North Pole or Africa. Love, however, just might be his undoing...

Striking a delicious balance between non-stop gags and some very pointed cultural criticism, the phenomenal success of Where am I going? is proof that 90 minutes of hilarity is the perfect antidote to the world's doom and gloom.
