Volere volare (To Want to Fly) is a 1991 Italian comedy film co-written, co-directed by and starring Maurizio Nichetti. It is a live-action movie with a cartoon character. The male lead is a man who dubs sound effects for cartoons and who is slowly turning into a cartoon himself. Right before this starts he meets a woman with a very unusual job with whom he falls in love. His transformation complicates both his private and professional life.
Maurizio is a funny and clumsy Italian voice actor for cartoons. Martina is a handyman woman, who charges from curious people with ambitions to realize their desires crazy for a short time. The two meet, and falls in love. Martina in fact loves the funny voice actor. One day, however, Maurizio, during dubbing, suffers an accident and slowly starts to turn into a cartoon...
