Il mattino ha l’oro in bocca/The Early Bird Cathes the Worm/Ranní ptáče dál doskáče

Director: Francesco Patierno
Italy, 2008

An acidic comedy based on the autobiography of a famous Italian radio host whose highly successful professional career was for years tarnished by the curse of the compulsive horse-race punter. Elio Germano (My Brother Is an Only Child) stars in this stirring tale about a highly unusual individual, set against a faithful backdrop of life during the 1980s.
