From Mimmo Calopresti the successful Italian director comes L’Abbuffata. Diamante a small town in Calabria southern Italy is hardly an exciting place. Gabriele Marco and Nicola are three youngsters who want to shoot a movie to relieve their boredom. They interview an old lady who recalls the love of her life a distant cousin of hers who emigrated to America as a youth whose return she is still waiting for. Indeed a suitable plot for a film. Neri is a former film director who shot one successful film they ask him for his help but he refuses. So they travel to Rome with Marco’s sister Elena where Francesco a friend of Neri’s unwillingly accommodates them. They end up involved in the TV showbiz rather than cinema but after a chance meeting with Amelie a French girl who seems to be interested in their intent and tells them she will mention it to her fiance Gerard who actually turns out to be Gerard Depardieu the renowned French actor… Could this be their turning point?
