“Come fai sbagli” ("Whatever you do is wrong") follows the family life of two moderns couples: Walter and Valeria Spinelli and Paolo and Laura Piccardo. One couple rejects the severe education received in the past. On the contrary, the other couple repeats the same severe education.
What connects Walter and Valeria to Paolo and Laura?
Only the street in which they live. A small and quiet street in a small neighborhood in Rome. “We have nothing in common with them…” This is what one couple would say about the other. But this is not true. Each family has teenager children, and it is this aspect which connects the two families. Through the eyes of these parents the spectators will follow the paths of their children with apprehension, entertainment, horror and despair.
Like Freud said:“There are two jobs in which you can be sure to fail, professor and parent”.
And again Freud, to parents who asked advices about their children, answered:“Do your best, in any case it will be misinterpreted”.
