Irene has just entered her forties and has no husband, no children, and a job many people dream of: she’s an undecover hotel critic, the much-feared guest who arrives incognito to make a note of, assess, and judge the standards of luxury hotels. In addition to her job, in her life are her sister Silvia, married with children, somewhat hare-brained and always in a rush, and her former fiancé Andrea. Irene has no desire whatsoever for "stability": she feels free and privileged. But is this real freedom? Something will happen that will put a dent in her certainty.



Born in Rome, Italy in 1971, Maria Sole Tognazzi apprenticed as an assistant director before launching her own directing career making music videos and shorts: It Doesn't End Here (1997), I Was There Too (1999). She made her feature debut in 2002 with PAST PERFECT, and followed with THE MAN WHO LOVES (2008) and a documentary about Ugo Tognazzi, PORTRAIT OF MY FATHER (2010).
