Director of the hit comedy Let Me Introduce You to Sofia (IFF 2019), Guido Chiesa returns with a hilarious remake of the Chilean film Sin Filtro, starring Valentina Lodovini (Welcome to the South, IFF11) as Giulia, a woman who takes a remedy that makes her unable to stop speaking her mind.
With a hectic and stressful daily routine in a big city, Giulia constantly deals with people who don’t appreciate her. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, Giulia decides to seek the advice of a bizarre life coach. Upon drinking the concoction he prescribes her, she is suddenly unable to filter herself when she speaks. All the humiliation and anger held in over the years explodes out of her without control, and with hilarious consequences.
The perfect chick flick to see with your girlfriends, Say It Loud is the story of one woman’s quest to gain control over her life and happiness. This new hit comedy features an energetic performance from Lodovini and provides copious amounts of laughter interspersed with heartfelt moments.
After graduating with a degree in philosophy and letters with a thesis in cinema, Guido Chiesa moved to New York, where he worked for several music magazines and as an assistant to ﬁlm directors such as Jim Jarmusch and Amos Poe. After returning to Italy, he directed ﬁlms such as Johnny the Partisan (2000) and Lavorare con lentezza (2004), while his hit comedy Let Me Introduce You to Sofia screened last year in the 2019 Italian Film Festival.
