Could someone provide an Italian translation for the film title "So I Married An Axe-Murderer"? If possible, make it sound like it could plausibly be the title of an opera. It would be much appreciated.

Speaking of whom, what's happened to Magma Dragoon? Is he still doing his homework?

I think this is really wonderful.

Apparently the film's Italian title is "Mia moglie è una pazza assassina?", if it helps at all.

Hmm. Not as operatic as I might hope, but I think I can do something with that. Thanks!

The film's translation is not entirely correct:
1)It translate to "My wife" not "I married". and 2)"Pazza Assasina" means a crazy/insane murderer, not really an axe murderer.Then again, it's hard to be literal so I guess that translation is as good as any.

For your opera thing, I'm pretty sure there isn't an Italian word for "axe murderer". Thus, the best you could do is use "Pazza assasina" (as the film), simply say a murderer, or say a murderer with an axe.

If you decide to go with "I married a crazy/insane murderer". Then the translation would be Sposato una pazza assasina?, if just a "I married a murderer" than just take away the pazza: Sposato una assasina?. Oh and remember that Italian has genders. Thus, you are saying I married a female murderer. To make it male you'd have to change it to Sposato un pazzo assasino? or Sposato un assasino? .I think Spotato una assasina? sounds more opera-y.I hope that was of any help!

Edit: "I married a murderer with an axe?" would be Spostato un assasino con un ascia?, btw.
