Plot

Un paese quasi perfetto is a comedy about the desire to stay and the desire to change. Pietramezzana is a small town nestled in the Basilicata mountains that is on the verge of disappearing. Young people are leaving, and the few remaining inhabitants are mostly former miners, living with employment insurance, which could soon turn into permanent unemployment.

A handful of inhabitants, led by the galvanic and charming Domenico, refuse to give up. As soon as they get a glimpse into the opening of a possible new factory, the solution to all their problems seems near. They are determined to stay active until the project is successful. The first thing to do is find a doctor, since without a doctor there cannot be a factory. As luck would have it, they bump into Gianluca Terragini, an ambitious cosmetic surgeon from Milan. The second and far more complicated thing they must do is to convince him to stay!

Trama

Un paese quasi perfetto è una commedia sulla voglia di restare e quella di cambiare. Pietramezzana è un piccolo paese sperduto nelle montagne lucane, che rischia di scomparire. I giovani lo stanno abbandonando e i pochi abitanti rimasti, per lo più ex minatori, vivono con una cassa integrazione che minaccia di trasformarsi presto in disoccupazione permanente.

I suoi abitanti, trascinati dall’energico Domenico non demordono e, non appena intravedono nell’apertura di una fabbrica la soluzione di tutti i loro guai, si attivano affinché il progetto vada a buon fine. La prima cosa da fare è trovare un medico – senza il medico non può esserci nessuna fabbrica – e fortuna vuole che si imbattano in Gianluca Terragni, ambizioso chirurgo estetico milanese. La seconda cosa, ben più complicata, sarà convincerlo a restare!

Intrigue

Un paese quasi perfetto est une comédie sur le désir de rester et de changement. Pietra Mezzana est une petite ville perdue dans les montagnes de Lucane (Basilicate) qui est à risque de disparaître. Les jeunes quittent, et les quelques habitants restants sont pour la plupart d’anciens mineurs, vivant avec l’assurance-chômage qui menace de devenir bientôt un chômage permanent.

Les habitants qui sont entraînés par Domenic, un homme actif et plein d’espoir, refusent d’abandonner dès qu’ils obtiennent un aperçu de l’ouverture d’une éventuelle nouvelle usine, devenant la solution à tous leurs problèmes. Ils sont déterminés à rester actif jusqu’à ce que le projet soit un succès. La première chose à faire est de trouver un médecin- sans médecin, il ne peut pas être une usine. La chance est possible quand ils rencontrent Gianluca Terragni, un chirurgien esthétique ambitieux de Milan. La deuxième chose encore plus compliqué qu’ils doivent faire, est de le convaincre à rester!
