An Almost Ordinary Summer is a fun-filled Italian comedy-drama from the year 2019, directed by Simone Godano, and featuring an ensemble cast that includes some of the biggest names in Italian cinema today. The movie is a delightful take on the classic "meet the parents" scenario, with a twist. The story centers around two large and unconventional Italian families, who are brought together when their elderly fathers decide to announce their engagement. The families, which include a successful architect named Carlo (Alessandro Gassmann), and a well-known doctor named Marco (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), must deal with the unexpected news of their fathers' relationship in their own ways.

Carlo, a wealthy and self-confident man, is hesitant to share his father with another family. He strongly believes in the idea of a traditional family, and wants everything to remain the same. On the other hand, Marco, a kind-hearted and modest doctor, is excited to expand his family and embrace the new changes.

As the two families come together to celebrate the engagement, both sides begin to experience a range of emotions and insecurities. The film hilariously depicts various episodes, such as the competitive beach games, a shared barbecue, and evening drinks that test their composure, challenges core values and offers insight into wounds and fears that each member of the family carries deep within.

Amidst all the laughter and joy, there are moments of tension and discord, as the different family members begin to clash with each other. The movie builds up to the big day of the wedding where everything is expected to change. The wedding dinner serves as a cathartic moment, where the characters finally confront their insecurities, allow themselves to be seen, and finally understand what is truly important in life.

Throughout the movie, there is a lightheartedness to the characters that keeps the audience engaged and entertained. The movie also features a stunning musical score that adds to the fun-filled nature of the film.
