TANDEM

by Lucio Pellegrini

synopsis

Luca (Bizzarri) sings in a left-wing, New Age socially-minded rock group. Camilla (Maggi) wants to study law. Given that love, like electricity attracts opposites they form a couple. But the flame of passion burns out very quickly Neither is achieving what he wants but they cannot live without one another.
Luca goes to a psychologist called Pietro (Kessisoglu) who is not tender with him since he believes in the motivation and independence. Luca finds himself surrounded by managers going through life crises who walk on hot coals. Camilla goes to a New Age psychotherapist called Blanda (Sacchi).
The two therapists are really husband and wife but they follow radically different systems. They do not resolve any of Camilla and Luca’s problems: they just make them worse. Everything is resolved when the four of them meet up together. The two couples quarrel, make up and switch partners to the extent that nothing is definite anymore.
