This debut feature from celebrated screenwriter Francesco Bruni (‘The First Beautiful Thing’) is a touching comedy about two broken men who help each other find their way.

After losing faith in the education system, retired teacher and novelist Bruno (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) has all but given up on life. A ghost writer for sports and television celebrities, he is currently writing the biography for former adult star Tina (Barbora Bobulova), while also tutoring privately to make ends meet. One of his students is Luca (Filippo Scicchitano), a drifting and despondent teenager who is on the brink of failure at school.

Luca’s mother takes a six-month job in Mali, and asks Bruno to look after her son while she’s away. Confused by the request, Bruno’s world is turned upside down when she reveals he is Luca’s father.

A poignant yet fresh story about a man learning to become a father, and a son choosing to become a man enriched by the different regional accents of Bruno and Luca. The‘scialla’ of the title – a Roman youth slang expression loosely translated as ‘take it easy’ – defines the style of the film.
