AGATA AND THE STORM is an Italian romantic comedy about the love affair a "woman of a certain age" has with a younger man. Filmed in stunning colors, the character's emotions come out as electro-magnetic shocks! Directed by Silvio Soldini, auteur behind international hit BREAD & TULIPS.

Synopsis: A swirl of pop-art color, madcap magic, and the bittersweet calls of life and love suddenly take the mature, ravishing, self-reliant Agata by storm. When Agata, popular bookshop proprietor, is suddenly wooed by a man almost half her age, her electricity hits high-voltage. It even sends light bulbs, computers and other electrical appliances bursting in her wake. This comedy reaches impossible heights of suspense, laughter and tenderness.
