Off Key

Synopsis

Set in a French château and famous concert halls around the world, Off Key is a tale of swollen egos, raging libidos and enough dysfunction to keep New York's psychiatric community in the money for all time. Ricardo (Joe Mantegna), the group's charming philanderer, is caught off guard by the announcement that his estranged daughter will shortly marry Armand (George Hamilton), the trio's pompous Frenchman. As distasteful as he finds the prospect, he is not one to pass up an opportunity to reunite the three tenors, who split ten years prior following some inexpert gunplay and a drawn-out court battle. Fabrizio (Danny Aiello), who has a classic case of obsessive-compulsive disorder, completes the picture. As the three men, children legitimate and otherwise, past and future wives, and a streetwise New York prostitute flock to the wedding, the world's press gather to record the events, little knowing that the three tenors are about to put on the show of their lives.

Off Key is directed by Manuel Gómez Pereira who is acclaimed for his phenomenally successful comedies, and produced by Andrés Vicente Gómez, whose credits include over 90 feature films in 30 years of production. Among these are the 1993 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Film Belle Epoque, The Girl of Your Dreams with Penelope Cruz; and Carlos Saura's Goya in Bordeaux, five-time winner at the 1999 Spanish Academy Awards.
