GARIBALDI'S LOVERS presents a fizzy ride through a magical vision of metropolitan Italy, while at the same time casting a critical eye on modern life in the city. Widowed plumber Leo is struggling to deal with the growing pains of his two adolescent children, when his life intersects with penniless artist Diana and her eccentric landlord Amanzio. Through a hilarious series of coincidences, they give each other new hope for their futures, and for the city itself.

Completely delightful and entertaining film that has a wide variety of characters and twists and turns in the multiple overlapping stories. Leone and his children, Diana the quirky artist and her demanding, clever and lovable landlord are the lead players. There is banter, wisdom, and screwball comedy romance, too. You'll enjoy Agostina the stork, the debates between the statues of Cazzaniga and Garibaldi, and the visits from Leone's dead wife who checks in and listens to his current problems, as she reaches into his cupboard to inhale the aroma from his coffee can. Smooth enjoyment here.

A well scripted witty comedy with some clever comedic touches. Reminds me of the fun Italian classics from the 60s.
