Synopsis


Luciano is a Neapolitan fishmonger who supplements his modest income by pulling
off little scams together with his wife Maria. A likeable, entertaining guy,
Luciano never misses an opportunity to perform for his customers and countless
relatives. One day his family urges him to try out for Big Brother. In chasing
this dream his perception of reality begins to change.
______________
Luciano est un chef de famille hâbleur et joyeusement exubérant, qui exerce
ses talents de comique devant les clients de sa poissonnerie et sa nombreuse
tribu à Naples. Un jour, poussé par ses enfants, il participe sans trop y croire
au casting d’une célèbre émission de téléréalité italienne. Le rêve de devenir
une personnalité médiatique modifie radicalement son destin mais aussi celui
de son entourage.
