Description: Italian filmmaker Alessandro Piva reunites much of his cast and crew from his 2000 film LaCapaGira for the crime comedy My Brother-in-Law. The film follows an odd couple of brothers-in-law wandering through the coastal city of Bari, Italy, and getting into trouble. While in town from the suburbs to attend a christening, Vito (Luigi Lo Cascio) gets his new car stolen. His wife Anna (Mariangela Arcieri) suggests that her gangster brother Toni (Sergio Rubini) help him find it. As they scour the city in search of the vehicle, Vito comes to realize that Toni has made tense relations with some local gangsters. Although Vito can't understand the Bari dialect, he's sure that Toni has done something to upset crime boss Nicola (Rino Diana). My Brother-in-Law was shown at the Locarno Film Festival as part of the Piazza Grande program.~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
