"An exploration of what happiness is, and how it can be found." – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
Beatrice (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) is a motor-mouthed fantasist, a self-styled billionaire countess who likes to believe she's on intimate terms with world leaders. Donatella (Micaela Ramazzotti) is a tattooed introvert, a fragile young woman locked in her own mystery. They are both patients at the Villa Biondi, a progressive but secure psychiatric clinic. Paolo Virzi's new film tells the story of the unpredictable and moving friendship that develops between the two women as they flee the mental institution in search of love and happiness in the open-air nuthouse - the world of sane people. Like Crazy unveiled at the Directors Fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival and took top honors at the Italian Academy Awards, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress.
