"Italian for Beginners" is a pretty horrible movie. It's a random mashup of unpleasantness and cheeze. Many of the Dogme Manifesto movies, faced with the difficulty of achieving emotional heft under the simplicity constraints, resort to a very manipulative battering of the audience with human misery. Then we get a mix of pure Romantic Comedy silliness where everyone's problems disappear and they all have fun and find love.
