Antonio (Giancarlo Commare) has been Lorenzo's (Carlo Calderone) husband for what feels like forever, and Lorenzo has made him pretty much a kept man - and then, rather out of the blue, Lorenzo asks for a separation and pretty much throws him out of the house. And suddenly everything changes for Antonio, as he has never really been on his own, and now the only person he can fall back on is of all people Lorenzo's sister Cristina (Michela Giraud), who's sympathetic to his cause and ultimately gets him together with Denis (Eduardo Valdarnini), a cocky rich kid who doubles at time as prostitute and as drug dealer, but who gets him a room in his mansion, and eventually a job at Luca's (Gianmarco Saurino) bakery, and who encourages him to become a pastry chef. Before long, Antonio and Denis become best friends, and likewise Antonio becomes good friends with Luca, even if he has seduced him at work once. Denis and Luca encourage Antonio to try online dating to still his sexual desires, and to stand on his own feet. Everything works well for Antonio for a while, until he meets Thomas (Lorenzo Adorni), and the two start a kind of serious relationship - not because Antonio really loves Thomas but because Thomas gives him the feeling he's cared for and wants him to make a kept man ... and more and more Antonio falls back into behavioural patterns he has experienced with Lorenzo - much to the dismay of his friends, who see all his opportunities being swept away ...


Mascarpone is a surprisingly multi-layered film that's only at its surface a romantic comedy - and sure employs many of that genre's tropes -, but really has more to tell than the usual happily-ever-after feelgood narrative. And thanks to a clever and witty screenplay it does that without driving the message home via sledgehammer but manages to entertain throughout, while a light-footed directorial effort and a relatable ensemble keep one engaged pretty much from first to last minute.
