The Lavazza Italian Film Festival is back again with an even larger line-up of films, especially comedies. Put Nonna in the freezer is one of these and you know from the title that a grandmother is involved.
Besides Nonna, the main cast includes her granddaughter, Claudia, an art restorer, and Simone, an overzealous, workaholic Guarda di Finanza inspector. Simone and his team of inspectors specialise in impersonating various groups of people in order to catch those who try to cheat the tax office and thereby the Italian government. And yes, Nonna has been put in the freezer, which is really where this somewhat farcical, yet very funny film really begins. A solution to a money problem turns out to be a much bigger problem as the film progresses. Claudia's two employees join her in this predicament, although sometimes you wonder about the help these two actually provide.
