"If you choose to watch Venice Calling, you will brighten up; sometimes you will not believe what’s happening, other times you will get excited, but clearly you will not get bored. In addition to the adventures of the crazy Chamodot family, you will enjoy the beautiful Italian scenery and a charming soundtrack".“ - Cristina Mitrea - 4arte.ro
Emile is fifteen. He lives in Montargis, between a sweet-crazy father and a mother who has always dyed his hair blond, because, it seems, he is more beautiful like that. When the girl who pleases him more than anything invites him to Venice for the holidays, he is overjoyed.
But there is one problem - his parents decide to accompany him! This is the story of a teenager born into an unclassifiable family, the story of a first love, miraculous and fragile.
This is the story of an initiatory and incredible journey where life often takes unawares, but where Venice, it will be at the rendezvous.
Interview with Valerie Bonneton and Benoit Poelvoorde: “The Chamodots are a family in whom everyone can recognise themselves.”
The film is a good combination of Italian romance combined with French comedy. Culinary speaking, it's a pizza with French cheese on it. Or an Italian dish served with the best quality French wine. A successful, perfect combination. […] Overall, Venice Calling - Venise n'est pas en Italie is an excellent film, a holiday comedy for the whole family.“ - Emil Calinescu - CinEmil.ro
