What are some good Italian language movies I could watch to help me brush up on my conversational Italian language skills?

For example, ones that have scenes of checking in at a hotel, ordering food at restaurants, navigating the railway system and airports, making bank transactions, etc.? Like an Italian version of Planes, Trains, & Automobiles?

    Hmm.. From you're description I'm not sure if you want movies or some kind of videocourse. It's hard for a movie not made on purpose to include those subjects in a natural way (e.g. there are probably a lot of comedies where the protagonist orders food at the restaurant, but you most certainly do not want to learn from them...) – Denis Nardin May 24 '18 at 18:51
  • @DenisNardin What are some good videocourses? – Geremia May 24 '18 at 20:39
  • @Geremia I don't know (I'm a native speaker, so I have little experience with language courses), but it is a different question than the one you're asking – Denis Nardin May 24 '18 at 20:48
  • @Geremia - it is not clear what’s your level of knowkedge in Italian, anyway this oneworlditaliano.com/italiano/video_corso_di_italiano.htm as well as other courses you can easily find online may be of help. – user519 May 24 '18 at 21:11

There are so many films to see my friend in order to brush up your conversational skills. Here are some films I recommend:

  • Senza nessuna pietà (2014)
  • L'uomo che ama (2016)
  • Mine Vaganti (bello)
  • Terra Ferma
  • Io sono l'amore (elegante)
  • Fuocoammare
  • L'estate addosso
  • Benvenuti al Sud (commedia)
  • Benvenuti al Nord (commedia)
  • L'industriale (mi piace molto)
  • La tenerezza
  • Gianni e le donne
  • Benvenuto Presidente!
  • Il comformista
  • Palio

    I removed the illegal streaming site because I don't quite think we want to become a repository of websites where you can stream movies. Moreover it is irrelevant for the actual content of the answer. I'm going to also remove the comments referring to it. – Denis Nardin May 28 '18 at 18:15
  • @DenisNardin I'm not going to escalate the matter, but I disagree. Your argument sounds like a slippery slope fallacy. Leaving there that web address wasn't illegal, and I don't think it did any harm. – Federico Poloni May 28 '18 at 18:26
  • @FedericoPoloni Other answers in the same thread say differently. The one you mentioned said the matter is not clear and “generally…”. I too would remove dubious links such as that one. Maybe this is better discussed in Meta. – egreg May 28 '18 at 19:04

This might be a silly idea, but if you want to watch a movie in Italian similar to Planes, Trains and Automobiles, why don't you watch the Italian dubbed version?

Most movies have an Italian dub, because in Italy it is very uncommon to watch subtitled movies.

  • Yeah, I thought about that, but there's no similar genre film originally in Italian? – Geremia May 28 '18 at 19:48
  • @Geremia Possibly. I don't really like that kind of comedies though, so I cannot help you much. Maybe someone else will provide other answers. – Denis Nardin May 28 '18 at 20:07
