In this Italian variant on the screwball comedy, an uptight psychologist gets more than just a physical workout when he signs up for personal-training sessions with an attractive young instructor. Toni Sevillo (“The Great Beauty”) is outstanding as Elia, a conservative Jewish psychiatrist who lives next door to his estranged wife, with whom he is still secretly in love. When his doctor warns him that his weight is putting his health at risk, Elia enlists Claudia (Verónica Echegui) to help get him into shape. A single mother to an undisciplined child, Claudia could use some coaching of her own — in life. Together, this mismatched pair makes strides in healing both body and soul.
