Robert De Niro in the comedy About My Father – now in cinemas!

This weekend, Robert De Niro returns to cinemas with the comedy About My Father, directed by Laura Terruso.

The hottest comic in America, Sebastian Maniscalco joins forces with legendary Italian-American and two-time Oscar® winner, Robert De Niro (Best Actor, Raging Bull, 1980), in the new comedy About My Father.

The film centers around Sebastian (Maniscalco) who is encouraged by his fiancée (Leslie Bibb) to bring his immigrant, hairdresser father, Salvo (De Niro), to a weekend get-together with her super-rich and exceedingly eccentric family (Kim Cattrall, Anders Holm, Brett Dier, David Rasche).

According to About My Father star and co-screenwriter, Sebastian Maniscalco, “the film is about two different families, from very different socioeconomic backgrounds, colliding during a holiday weekend, before they realize that those differences are what make them unique.”

Maniscalco, a celebrated stand-up comedian, adds that his onscreen persona “is trying to walk a tightrope with his father in bringing him into an environment that is unfamiliar to him.”

When asked about the script, De Niro says, “I saw that it had a personal element from Sebastian's experience, obviously. And, after getting to know Laura Terruso a little bit, I realized her background too. They [Sebastian and Laura] knew the world. They're from the world. So that was an important part of it [the story],” says De Niro.

Early on, De Niro, famed for his immersion in his roles, requested a special read-through of the script with a group of fellow actors. “So, we flew to New York, during the height of the pandemic, and did a table read with him,” Maniscalco describes. “We were all wearing masks, and it was a little weird, but we were glad to do it.”

It also seemed pre-destined for Laura Terruso to direct. The award-winning director, screenwriter and producer had completed a feature film for Netflix, Work It, when the script for About My Father came her way. Her reaction was immediate and unsubtle: “This script made me jump and say, ‘I must direct this movie’ because it felt so personal and universal.”

Terruso’s personal connection to the project comes from her background, which parallel’s Maniscalco’s in significant ways. As she explains, “Sebastian’s father emigrated from Sicily in the 1960s, as did my mother, and we’ve both found our way into comedy.”

Sebastian wrote the movie as a love letter to his father, and for me, it was clearly a love letter to my mother. We really bonded on that level and felt like, okay, we know who and what this is about and that guided all the decision making moving forward.”

About My Father is directed by Laura Terruso and written by Austen Earl & Sebastian Maniscalco.

Prorom will release About My Father this weekend in: Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and in June in Czech Republic and Slovakia.

How To Survive Without Mum – now in cinemas!

The funniest family returns this weekend at the cinema! How To Survive Without Mum brings Franck Dubosc and Aure Atika back to the cinema, the heroes of the first film 10 Days with Dad from 2020!

Antoine chose to stay at home to take care of his children after he was fired. The roles have been reversed for two years now, and Antoine's energy is beginning to wane in the face of his family's demands.

When the whole family rushes to catch the train to go skiing, his wife is urgently called to her law office, so Antoine is left to fend for himself with their four children running amok on the ski slope...

Director and screenwriter Ludovic Bernard declares that it was somehow easy for him to direct this sequel: "This is my first time doing a sequel. I realized that the approach with the characters is greatly facilitated. We know them because we find them, the actors also know them so there is less hesitation, questions and, as a result, greater freedom of action which is very interesting and which I really liked".

The main actor, Frank Dubosc, declares that the filming was exhausting, but the result was as expected: "It's exhausting. The falls, the waterfalls… You come home at night, you hurt all over and you wonder why you still inflict that on yourself at your age. And the answer comes immediately: to make people laugh, to give pleasure to others and therefore to take it".

How To Survive Without Mum / 10 Jours Encore sans maman stars Franck Dubosc, Aure Atika, Alexis Michalik, Annelise Hesme and can only be seen in cinemas from April 28, distributed by Prorom and Ro Image.
