Italian for Beginners

I don't like the poster. It doesn't tell you about the movie, because 95% of the movie takes place in Denmark. However because the movie is done in a specific style it feels very much like you're a fly on the wall just watching these people as they go through their lives. They fall in love, have fights, people die, and people live their lives. It's a hard story to describe, and I'm not going to try to do so. The characters are ones you'd meet everyday. There's a hairdresser, a pastor, a hotel concierge, a bakery attendant, a restaurant manager, and a chef. The people aren't classically Hollywood beautiful, they're real, and approachable.

A romantic comedy with and about real people.
