    People always sentimentalizes their memory, thinking past is sweeter & better than now (sometimes more painful but both are same in the way to be farther from the truth.) "Summer of Giacomo" depicts that elements with vividly colorful pleasure of sun-soaked 16mm graininess & suprising editing magic. Comodin & Editor Joao Nicolau (he's good director, too. Wanna see "John From") is master of passing time. Amazing.

    E va bè, quì gioco in casa. Tutto il mio appoggio a Comodin, che con niente è riuscito a realizzare qualcosa di quasi unico nel panorama del cinema italiano contemporaneo, aiutando (spero) a spezzare quella catena di mediocrità che affligge la nostra cinematografia. Tutto questo, grazie naturalmente al sostegno di Belgio e Francia... E il respiro europeo si sente. Produttori italiani, vediamo di prendere esempio!

    A promising debut. I suggest to recover "L'estate di mio fratello" (P.Reggiani, 05), stunning. Can anybody tell me something about the interesting interpretation of "L'estate di giacomo" as written in synopsis?
