One of the best italian debuts of the last decade, even if the director is not a youngster.
It's apparently a simple story about two teenagers living in a difficult reality, forced to stay together for a day. But it's not just a tale about growing up, or knowing someone else, not only about reaching a compromise with our dreams (well, for this generation isn't that easy even define what's their dream) Watch it!
Non un brutto film ma aspettative molto alte (e disattese) dovute alle critiche. Compatto, poetico e gradevole. Bella la scenografia (un vecchio manicomio) e la fotografia. Un altro film meridionalista (in dialetto napoletano con sottotitoli) dopo Reality e E' stato il figlio. Che il sud stia diventando l'eldorado nostrana del cinema d'autore?
Incredible debut. A work based on a perfect balance from beginning to end. It wasn't easy to tell a story like that, there was the risk of falling into rhetoric or in easy drama. Instead, the result is a deep and sensitive opera. And Salvatore's smile worths the whole movie.
