Loose Cannons
This latest Italian yarn from Turkish director Ferzan Ozpetek is another multistranded comedy of errors and sexual identity. The focus is on Tomasso (Riccardo Scamarcio), son of a pasta-making Puglian clan, whose plans to come out to his traditional family are derailed when his older brother steals his thunder. Looking sideways to Tomasso's siblings, friends and acquaintances, and back to his grandmother's early life, Loose Cannons explores a range of dilemmas with humour and sensitivity – it's engaging, affecting, well-acted and handsomely shot but feels somewhat cloistered and rarely gets the pulse racing.
