Film of May 2019
‘THE CHAIR OF HAPPINESS’ (‘La Sedia Della Felicita’), Italy
(With English sub-titles)
1 Hr. 38 Mins
Directed by Carlo Mazzacurati

VENUE: RCB FORUM (2nd Floor, River City Bangkok)

Our second movie, in RCB Film Club’s 2019 Film Series, is a whodunnit mystery and rollicking
Italian comedy combined, that should keep the audience at the edge of their seats. It’s an
amalgam of mystery and suspense, romance and emotion, topped up with plenty of laughs.
The story has an unbeatable array of colorful characters, from a tattoo artist and spa therapist, to
psychic medium, greedy priest, wild magician, Chinese restaurateur, Indian assistant.
The movie has an arresting beginning, with a tattoo artist Dino creating a dolphin on a
fishmonger’s back, He then encounters his pretty, lively neighbor Bruna, a beauty therapist. He’s
smitten, and after that, his life is never the same again. Nor is hers, when she is told (by a lady
mafia-don, in a prison) of a chair that contains hidden treasure. She is determined to hunt for it,
and he offers his help. The task is not easy, when they learn that there are eight identical chairs!
The rest of the film deals with the couple’s uproarious adventures to retrieve the lost treasure. It
takes them to beautiful and bizarre places, from lagoons and hills, to abandoned homes and
crowded museums. They also meet a wide range of eccentric characters, and encounter strange
animals like boars. The final scene in the gorgeous Alps, is intensely beautiful- and funny.
The story is a surreal drama of fun, fantasy and high spirits. It was the last movie of Director
Carlo Mazzacurati, who made 23 films, but died before the release of this movie. The film was
premiered at the Torino Festival, won various local awards, and was a ‘hit’ with the general

Critics: ‘A funny and entertaining film, free from the rules, that follows a narrative line
entirely its own.’ ‘An unexpected, exhilarating journey, with some brilliant moments.’ ‘A comedy of great freedom, which through nonsense, fantasy and surrealism,
demonstrates a courage and originality.’
