Paolo Virzi’s bittersweet comedy Like Crazy has been one of the great success stories of Italian cinema over the past year and provides a terrific showcase for the talents of Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Micaela Ramazzotti. Tedeschi plays Beatrice; rich, spoilt and filled with delusions of grandeur as she rules the roost in a mental institution. New arrival Donatella (Ramazzotti) couldn’t be more different or more fragile and just wants a clean bill of mental health.

An unexpected and beneficial friendship develops that soars when they manage to escape their captivity and take to the road. A joyous, perfectly judged delight.
