“Diego Abatantuono and Frank Matano are an irresistible couple in the comedyf" - LA REPUBBLICA
PLOT: Pierfrancesco is a 65-year-old doctor who makes house visits during the night-shift. He’s a grumpy man, full of aches and pains and very rough with his patients. One night he’s involved in a road collision with Mario, a thirty-year-old rider for a food delivery service. Mario is uninjured, but his bicycle is destroyed. The accident also causes Pierfrancesco sciatica to flare up, making it impossible for him to drive. Both of their jobs are in jeopardy, but the doctor has an idea that could help them both: “remotely guided” by Pierfrancesco via a wireless headset, Mario visit his patients, and they’ll also carry out Mario’s delivery in Pierfrancesco’s car. After a range of daring (mis)adventures, they will learn to support each other, and the night will end with their lives both changed for the better.

DIRECTOR NOTES:     GC

Guido Chiesa was born in Torino. After college, he transferred to the US where he worked in the film industry. He has directed many feature and TV films and in 2000 he won the Venice Film Festival’s Ragazzi e cinema award for Il partigiano Johnny,

About filming, Chiesa stated: “Covid helped us because the city was deserted, we filmed in February…and it made it very compact because it was nighttime and there were only us, some police, ambulances and deliverymen who waived at Matano, believeing he was a colleague."
