Welcome to the North
Benvenuti al nord
2012 Comedy Italian with English subtitles 106 mins
Director: Luca Miniero
Starring: Claudio Bisio, Valentina Lodovini, Alessandro Siani and Angela Finocchiaro
Rating: M contains offensive language

The quirky postal workers of the 2012 festival hit ‘Welcome to the South’ reverse direction in this year’s hilarious opening night selection ‘Welcome to the North’.

Following his eye-opening experience in the south, Alberto (Claudio Bisio) returns home to the north with the promotion to Milan he had always dreamed of. Meanwhile, his old friend Mattia (Alessandro Siani) from the laidback post office in Campania is trying to prove to his wife (Valentina Lodovini) that he is committed to working harder to fulfil her dream of moving out of her mother-in-law’s home and into their own love-nest. But when his work colleagues misunderstand and submit his transfer request, he finds himself unexpectedly transferred to Milan.

Skewering north/south stereotypes with slapstick humour and having fun with the Cilento and Milanese dialects, director Luca Miniero delivers another record-breaking Italian box office sensation and reunites the entire charming cast, including Claudio Bisio, Valentina Lodovini and Angela Finocchiaro.

“A Neapolitan in Milan is a comic bomb waiting to explode. The context is more urban than ‘Welcome to the South’, the characters are familiar and for this reason you laugh more than in the first film”. Luca Miniero.
