Mine Vaganti – Loose Cannons

Mine Vaganti (2010) is an Italian film from the Turkish-born, Italian director Ferzan Özpetek that we saw recently as part of the SIFF festival. The title translates to “loose cannons” and refers to a nickname for the grandmother in the film. The film is an enjoyable comedy with a couple of twists and a satisfying end. Here's the official trailer for it.

Here's a trailer with subtitles.

And the music, very nice. The soundtrack (“colonna sonora”) has as its theme the very catchy and new version of the song 50mila by Nina Zilli. Other songs that stood out in the soundtrack include Pink Martini’s Una Notta a Napoli, the 70s disco song Sorry, I’m a Lady from Baccara, and Kutalama from the Turkish singer/songwriter Sezen Aksu.
