PRACTISE MAKES PERFECT
12 Minutes Super 16
From the rolling hills of southern Italy to the manic
streets of the Big Smoke, Marco arrives in London
to master the Queens English. Struggling in his new
environment, he meets the wrong people, in the wrong
place at the wrong time. Being foreign has never been
this painful, but remedy could be on the next underground train.
Practise Makes Perfect was a major success and was screened at international film festivals world wide, including: London, Berlin, Oslo, Raindance, Brooklyn NY, Brisbane.
It was also screened on SKY TV on the Turner Classic Movie channel (TCM) in 2002.
