Italian writer-cum-director Fausto Brizzi's nostalgic teen comedy Night Before Finals (Notte prima degli esami) unfolds in Italy in the mid-1980s. High school student Luca brazenly insult his literature professor (Giorgio Faletti) but fails to anticipate that teacher's participation in his oral exams. He thus makes a concerted effort to win the prof over, while pining for the class sex kitten (Cristiana Capotondi) - then realizes that the two are father and daughter. The filmmakers sprinkle the soundtrack with '80s europop hits by such groups as Duran Duran and Queen, and fill the frame with a myriad of references to the era. Brizzi co-authored the witty script with Masimiliano Bruno and Marco Martani.
