About The Film
A self-involved aging psychoanalyst has his tightly ordered world thrown for a loop by a high-spirited fitness instructor, in the Italian comedy LET YOURSELF GO. Dr. Elia Venezia (Toni Servillo) leads a predictable existence, single-mindedly focused on treating his patients, while secretly pining for his ex-wife (Carla Signoris), living right next door. Under doctor’s orders to get in shape, he hires Claudia (Verónica Echegui), a zesty young personal trainer with a complicated past, and his diametrical opposite. Hilarity ensues, as Elia’s entanglements with the frenetic single mother and her low-life criminal ex-boyfriend (Luca Marinelli) spark a new lease on life. Featuring energetic performances and whip-smart dialogue that mixes Freudian humor with screwball hijinks, this uproarious crowd-pleaser is winner of the Italian Golden Globe for Best Comedy.
