Recommend this film

In I promessi sposi, a documentary with a comic approach, individual stories intersect over the frenetic days leading up to a wedding. Each protagonist represents a fundamental aspect of marriage. In addition to the couples about to make their vows, we meet Don Emilio – a Catholic priest whose course of pre-marital lessons combine faith and science, penance and regulations, sacraments and sexuality – and who leads those who believe in the sacred union as well as the marriage registry civil servants, whose work is administrative. The latter, through their daily encounters with the couples, evoke an Italian society that is becoming more hybrid, changing, growing and building its future on marriage. Contrasting the viewpoints of a Church representative with those of the government officials, the film shows couples at a loss in the face of State regulations and Church dogma.
