Get ready to let yourself go at the Opening Night Reception of the Lavazza Italian Film Festival.

Join us from 6pm for vino, Stella Artois and sparkling Valdo Marca Oro prosecco, a taste of Italy from Cafe D'Freoand operatic tunes from the incredible Antonietta D'Elia before the 6.45pm premiere of Italian Golden Globe winning Let Yourself Go!

Winner of the 2017 Italian Golden Globe for Best Comedy, the hilarious new screwball comedy from director Francesco Amato (LIFF13 favourite Cosimo and Nicole) stars the phenomenal Toni Servillo as an uptight psychoanalyst whose life is upended when he becomes involved with an effervescent personal trainer, well-versed in matters of the body, but less so of the mind.

With a beard and glasses à la Sigmund Freud, Servillo is Dr. Elia Venezia, a psychoanalyst who is separated from his wife, but still lives in the same apartment block as her. Venezia lives a comfortable and rather self-centred existence, until a spell of illness forces him to the doctor. Instructed to lose some weight, he befriends a zesty Spanish personal trainer, Claudia (the stunning Veronica Echegui), a single mother with an unhinged criminal ex-boyfriend. As Claudia drags Elia around Rome, a series of mishaps ensue, breathing new energy into his tired and predictable life.

Servillo, so well-known for his dramatic work with Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty), clearly delights in a change of pace with this light-hearted caper. Audiences in need of a laugh should definitely Let Yourself Go!

Winner: Best Comedy, Golden Globes Italy 2017; Best Supporting Actress (Carla Signoris), Nastrid’Argento Awards 2017

Nominated: Best Comedy, Best Actor (Toni Servillo), Nastrod’Argento Awards 2017; Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, Golden Ciak Awards 2017
