Synopsis

Pietro arrives to Rome from Sicily with the aim of becoming an actor! Between an audition and the other, he scrapes a living working at night in a bakery. He is shy and is a loner, and the only company he keeps is his muddle-headed cousin, Maria, who has a rather hectic love life. They share the same flat for a while, although their love-hate relationship soon makes their everyday life unbearable.

______________

Pietro vient d’arriver à Rome de la Sicile pour réaliser son rêve : devenir acteur ! Entre deux auditions, il gagne sa vie en travaillant dans une boulangerie. Il est timide, seul et a pour seule compagnie sa cousine Maria, un peu tête en l’air, qui a une intense vie amoureuse. Ils partagent le même appartement même si leur relation d’amour-haine est chaque jour insupportable pour chacun d’eux.
