Io Hon Mi Marito Per Procura (by Lino Riccobene)

in Italian,with English subtitles


For Charlie Mangiapani, life in Canada couldn’t be better. The 29 year old lives at home with an overbearing mother who STILL makes his lunch and a father who doesn’t quite give him the freedom he seeks. Throw in a buona jobba and it’s as if Charlie were given a lifelong prescription for happiness. Unfortunately, for Charlie, the side-effects of being single, nearly 30, and in an intrusive household are more than he had bargained for. With one phone call, Charlie’s dreams of marrying a naisa Canadian gherla are tossed away like an old sanguiccio as he is set to be the next Mangiapani to walk into an arranged marriage to a girl from the old country. What happens when these families and their worlds collide? A comedy of love, life, and linguistics in a courtship that marries Tony and Tina’s Wedding with Divorce: Italian Style… a la Canadian-Sicilian zest.
