Sexual identity and family are complicated by the laws of desire in Simone Godano’s comedy, set in sunny Gaeta on the Tyrrhenian Sea, south of Rome. Carlo (Alessandro Gassmann), 50, is an upstanding and forthright father who just happens to be in love with 60-year-old Tony (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), a rich and spoiled art dealer.
