Nanni Moretti's Aprile tells the story of his experience of adjusting to first time fatherhood, the circumstances of which are complicated by the fact that he is attempting to produce a political documentary at the same time. His delight at the news of his wife's pregnancy is soon supplanted by terrible fears of not being up to fatherhood and taking care of the future mother, not to mention a general panic at the thought of attending the birth itself. His attempts to film an expose of the right-wing political coalition begin to conflict with his personal life, as impending fatherhood becomes increasingly more important to him than his work. Family, art and politics mingle in this charming light-hearted tale. Blessed with generous amounts of introspection, irony and humour, this is Moretti's most personal film to date.
