From Quartet Records: "Premiere release of retro comedy score by Spanish composer Bernardo Bonezzi. Mari del Sud (aka Our Tropical Island) is a 2001 Italian-Spanish comedy directed by Marcello Cesena and starring Diego Abatantuono and Victoria Abril. Based on the 1999 German film Sudsee eigene Insel, the story concerns an upcoming couple whose credits card have been swept clean by their financial adviser. Trying to save face in front of their neighbors, the husband and wife team moves down to their basement to pretend they are away on an exotic trip. As can be expected from a spirited Mediterranean comedy, this is only the first step in a series of comic pitfalls that man endanger the whole family’s life… Bernardo Bonezzi created a funny, retro-fitted score that follows the comedy without falling into the trap of mickey-mousing scenes. Characterized by strong themes, inventive orchestration and a great performance from the Prague Philharmonic, Mari del Sud deserves to be released a decade after the picture’s premiere."
