A casa tutti bene
tells the story of a big family coming together to celebrate the golden wedding anniversary of their grandparents on the island where they moved to live. Their return to the mainland is planned for the evening, but a sudden swell forces them to remain on the island. This will give them the opportunity to come to terms with themselves and to deal with their past, unresolved jealousies, anxieties, betrayals, fears and unexpected loves at first sight.
Shooting will take place entirely in Ischia for seven weeks. Gabriele Muccino states: "During my Hollywood adventure, I've never stopped thinking about Italy and our roots. At some point I felt the growing desidere to come back and tell a story with a strong and personal viewpoint on life. This film gives me the opportunity of narrating many stories and destinies that meet, confront, and fight against each other. The island is a place, also symbolically, from where you can't run away and where human relations, the encounter of many generations and social backgrounds, trigger big conflicts, and big passions too. When the storm is over and they go back home, nothing will be same."
