Fabio De Luigi makes his Directorial Debut with "Tiramisù"

“I found it fun to deconstruct the legend of success, to portray the arrogance of those who lose sight of what matters and how corruptible people are." Actor Fabio De Luigi steps behind the camera for "Tiramisù", a brand new comedy starring some of Italy's finest actors: Vittoria Puccini, Angelo Duro, Alberto Farina, Giulia Bevilacqua, Nicola Pistoia, John Esposito, Orso Maria Guerrini and Pippo Franco.

The comedy is the story of Antonio Moscati (Fabio De Luigi), a pharmaceutical rep with little enthusiasm for his job, and therefore little success. His wife, Aurora (Vittoria Puccini), is a sweet woman, but Antonio has this nagging fear that she will soon tire of him and his mediocre lifestyle. Everything changes one day when Antonio accidently leaves the tiramisù his wife made in a doctor's office.

I first discovered De Luigi during a trip to Italy a few years ago when I saw him on television in his show, "Love Bugs" with Michelle Hunziker. Upon returning home, I searched for the show on YouTube and watched every episode I could find. Since then, I have been a huge admirer of his work. He is a comedy genius.

"Tiramisù" opens in Italian theaters on 25 February. Watch the trailer here.
