Lorenzo is at the center of a disparate group of friends. He and his boyfriend Davide, a famous novelist, host frequent dinner parties. At one of them, Lorenzo collapses into a coma, leaving the rest of the group to question what other connections they have to one another. Unfortunately, most of my interest in the film plotzed face first into the pasta right alongside Lorenzo. Saturn in Opposition was nominated for several David di Donatello awards (Italy's answer to the Oscars®), but I give it no recommendation.
