The small town of Pietramare in Sicily suffers from the mismanagement of the long-standing corrupt mayor Gaetano Patanè, who knows all the tricks and is able to eliminate political opponents in time. In the upcoming elections, only the intimate, but inexperienced teacher Pierpaolo Natoli dare to stand up against him as an outsider. Patanè is safe, but the miracle happens: the inhabitants are fed up with the swamp of corruption and choose Natoli as their new mayor. He holds his election promise and immediately rules the city uncompromisingly according to the principles of order, honesty and law. Nobody expected that. Soon the enthusiasm of the voters falls down and the first citizens demand a return to the old, more comfortable system ...

The Sicilian comedy duo Ficarra and Picone, always working together as authors, directors and leading actors of their films, is very popular in Italy. With the cheeky political satire L'ora legal, the two have once again hit the mark: the film recorded more than 500,000 visitors at the start weekend, becoming the biggest comedy success of this year.

looking forward to seeing you!
Cheers
