It feels like I've seen a lot of relationship movies lately. In particular, I've seen a lot of films about how a relationship can shift after a couple has a baby, or about men freaking out about marriage or fatherhood, or about men who just don't really want to grow up. Very often those stories are told from a distinctly male perspective. Even Knocked Up, which I liked, painted the guys as just wanting to chill and have some fun, while the women were the ones who were responsible (or nagging, depending on your point of view). If this relationship paradigm in film is true for American films, it's even more so for Italian cinema, which is much more predominantly male than the film world in the US. So when I saw Riprendimi, a comedy about a broken relationship by Italian filmmaker Anna Negri, it was like a breath of fresh air.
