A romantic comedy that combines knockabout farce with heartfelt emotion, For Roseanna pairs rising international star Jean Reno and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl as Marcello and Roseanna, a husband and wife whom death will, perhaps, only nominally part. Steeped in the timeless beauty and warm sensuality of a small Italian village, For Roseanna is a celebration of life and love in the face of death that is both poignant and delightful.
Marcello, a trattoria proprietor in the tiny village of Travento, is a man with a truly life-or-death mission. He is determined to secure his terminally ill wife's dearest wish: to be buried next to their long-deceased daughter in the local cemetery, which only has three plots left. While Marcello goes to increasingly extreme lengths to keep everyone in the village alive, well, and out of his wife's intended graveyard spot, Roseanna occupies herself with taking care of her husband's life after her death.
