From Gay Essential
Written and directed by Ferzan Özpetek, Loose Cannons (Mine Vaganti) is an Italian comedy, starring Riccardo Scamarcio, Alessandro Preziosi and Ennio Fantastichini. Released in 2010, the youngest son of the conservative Cantone family wants to come out of the closet.
Winner of 20 International Film Awards including “BEST SCREENPLAY”, “BEST ENSEMBLE” and “BEST DIRECTOR”
“Ferzan Özpetek goes back to what he knows and does best: a coming-out comedy about homosexuality and family values, full of memorable quirky characters, laugh out-loud moments mixed with bittersweet and poignant reflections.”
“The film’s Southern Italian location is really stunning and captured with great skill by Maurizio Calvesi who rightly won a Globi d’Oro for Best Cinematography.”
— The Film Review
“While it plays with the standard coming-out formula, it manages to escape many of its trappings and feel much broader in its discussion of family, tradition, responsibility, and happiness.”
— Brian Juergens, NewNowNext
