Me, Myself and Her
Io e lei

DIRECTOR: Maria Sole Tognazzi

International Premiere

Sabrina Ferilli (The Great Beauty) and seven-time Donatello Award winner Margherita Buy (His Secret Life) star in Italy’s first romantic comedy about a female couple, the second feature film from Maria Sole Tognazzi (daughter of Ugo Tognazzi, star of La cage aux folles).

Polar opposites in personality but perfectly aligned in love, Marina and Federica have built their five-year relationship on trust, respect, and chemistry. They share a beautifully appointed apartment in Rome, complete with a Bengal cat and an observant (and often disapproving) queeny maid named Rolando. A former beloved actress, the stunning Marina is gregarious and warm and has been open about her sexuality for years, while Federica is reserved, even “frosty,” as noted by family members, with a past that includes an ex-husband and a 24-year-old son. Federica’s fears about public perception tend to drive rifts between the two, although it is obvious they are very deeply in love. A chance meeting with a male crush from Federica’s past sets off a litany of doubts and threatens to disrupt the blissful world she and Marina have created together. Which version of herself will Federica ultimately choose? 

Striking a mature balance between comedy and drama, Tognazzi finds the universal chord in her characters’ romantic struggles and delicately unfolds an affectionate story of love and compassion, graciously observing tempestuous hearts searching for their true home.
