An Italian produced comedy with an Islamic terrorism theme entitled 'Che Bella Giornata' or 'What a Beautiful day' has broken the country's all time box office records for a locally produced film, hauling in a massive 42 million dollars and counting, in just two weeks after its release.
The film's plot revolves around a security guard who falls in love with an Arab woman who is planing to bomb the Milan Duomo.
The movie's success has also dethroned Roberto Benigni's Holocaust-theme 1997 film and triple Oscar winner 'Life Is Beautiful,' which held the title of highest-earning local film for 13 years running.
Produced by Medusa film, for an average Italian budget of around 6.6 million dollars, Medusa CEO Giampaolo Letta said the picture has performed beyond the company's "most optimistic expectations.".
