Picl | Perfetti Sconosciuti
Eva and Rocco, a married couple in their fourties, have invited three befriended couples to come and have dinner at their house. Most of them have known each other since they were kids. Only Carlotta, Lele's second wife, is quite new. During starters, they discuss a woman who caught her husband cheating on her when she found compromising messages on his phone. Eva friskly proposes that everyone puts his phone on the table during dinner so they can see all the messages and phone calls coming in. As good friends, there's nothing to hide from each other, right?
During pasta, this seems to be a fun and innocent little game between friends. But as the meat dishes and tiramisu are served, the evening develops into a very painful one. They find out how little they actually know about each other, including their own partners.
