Comedy is usually the pain killer for hard times, and Carlo Verdone offers some commercial relief through “Posti in piedi in paradiso” [Eng. Title: A Flat for Three].

By some coincidence, Ulisse and Fulvio end up sharing a flat with the estate agent who showed them the property, Domenico. With a dip in all the three middle-aged divorcees’ fortunes, also exacerbated by the economic downturn, they strike an unlikely friendship in order to get by. They stutter and make some poor decisions, but all ends well in this rather tame comedy, even if it is generally well written. The Italian title alludes to too many people attempting to mend their ways in order to find a place in an already crowded heaven – Ulisse, Fulvio, and Domenico being three among them.

A typical Verdone, it is packed with big stars like Pierfrancesco Favino and Micaela Ramazzotti, and Carlo Verdone also makes an appearance as Ulisse. This may be a well-made and above average comedy, but is still only Easy Viewing..! Blu-ray Link
