“An understated melodrama that blends past and present.” — Screen International

Set across two time periods, Io Sto Bene tells the story of Antonio Spinelli who at the end of the 1960s left the catastrophic situation in Italy, along with his cousin and friend, to work abroad. Antonio finds his way to Luxembourg where he meets and falls in love with Mady whom he builds a new life with. Decades later Antonio is alone once more, but through a chance encounter meets an aspiring young DJ named Leo, a young Italian woman whose circumstances have stranded her in Luxembourg. In Leo, Antonio sees somebody whom he can help and soon their pair form a strong paternal friendship. 

The segments of Io Sto Bene set in the past are rich with period detail recalling classic European cinema in the 1960s. Meanwhile the contemporary scenes portray the very sweet and caring bond between Antonio and Leo resulting in an uplifting film that offers an unique perspective on Italian identity as expats in Luxembourg. 

Luxembourg’s submission for the Best International Feature Film Academy Award.
