Pensavo fosse amore, invece era un calesse
|Pensavo fosse amore, invece era un calesse|
|Directed by||Massimo Troisi|
|Music by||Pino Daniele|
Tommaso and Cecilia are two neapolitan fiancés, leading an apparently regular life: he's got a restaurant in the Borgo Marinari. His single and bigot friend Amedeo owns a library nearby: Amedeo has a teenager sister, Chiara, who's in love with Tommaso.
Tommaso and Cecilia are about to marry each other, but Cecilia's excessive jealousy imperils the wedding, especially when she pretends having heard her future husband naming another woman, Elena, while they were making love. The situation quickly degenerates: Cecilia leaves Tommaso and gets engaged with a mysterious man named Enea, who is reputed beautiful, charmant and extremely sympathetic by Tommaso's and Cecilia's common friend, albeit Tommaso never saw him directly.
By the way, Amedeo gets engaged with Flora, former girlfriend of a common mate, Giorgio. When Chiara realizes she can't conquer Tommaso's heart, in a very funny scene she poisons him spiking his coffee with rat powder. Once reestablished, Tommaso tries any way to disenchant his loved Cecilia, even asking help to a white magician. It seems to work: Cecilia leaves Enea and gets back to Tommaso.
The wedding day arrives, but Tommaso does not go to the altar: his love for Cecilia is gone, he even doesn't know why, maybe because, as he states in one of the movie's final lines, "men and women are not made to be joined in marriage", so they arrange for going out at night without getting married.
