The Worst Week Of My Life Review

Matrimony has always lent itself as the butt of jokes, a topic that can always be relied upon to deliver comic brushstrokes.

And much to the relief of the comic soul in us, The Worst Week Of My Life is no exception.

Paolo [Fabio De Luigi], a 40 year old middle aged man falls in love with the beautiful Margherita [Christiana Capotondi].

As the movie progresses, like any other couple in love, they are scheduled to tie the knot in a week’s time.

But check this out. Matrimony will not happen unless their worlds collide!

It turns out to be a torturously endless week just before the ‘D Day’ as the girl’s parents loaded with cash and eccentricities make a superlatively nasty contribution to a horrific disaster.

And as if the cup of misfortunes is not filled to the brim for the poor advertising agent as he makes valiant attempts to survive the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Paolo’s half demented ex-girlfriend arrives on the scene for turning the week into a tantalizingly nightmarish cul-de-sac.

Hilariously crafted, The Worst Week Of My Life is highly watchable and a good time pass even by the brightest optimist to convert him from a nothing-can-ever-go-wrong belief to a willing subscriber to everything-that-can-go-wrong-will creed.

Go, breathe in the air of the Lavazza Italian Film Festival and get ready to witness cinema of epic proportions.
