Much loved Italian comedians Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo leave for summer holidays as strangers, but soon cross paths despite their very different lives in I Hate Summer, an uproariously funny box office hit from director and co-writer Massimo Venier.
Breaking the golden rule for the perfect summer holiday – never book the same holiday house as other people – the men and their families find themselves sharing more than just the same beach. The mix of personalities: a fussy and meticulous guy who is dealing with bankruptcy; a successful doctor struggling with a son going through a teenage crisis; a hypochondriac with a dog named Brian and a passion for Massimo Ranieri, a combination that creates an inevitable and very amusing clash. But who will succeed in the quest to enjoy summer, or will family rivalry reign supreme on this holiday?
After a seven-year hiatus, Massimo Venier celebrates his comeback with a delightful gem about Italian society and friendship, which sees Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo return to their beloved comedic origins.
