feel unique flavour of Neapol

this is not a comedy.

rather documentary movie. shows what i am usually most interested in - local people. their habits, day-to-day life, way they enjoy life and face problems people of Neapol, and city itself, from 50ties as pictured in this movie is worth to see.

all of them are 'typical' Italians - eating pasta, drinking wine, celebrating family, friends, expressing feelings. Moreover you will see local communities, habits - what is most probably no more existing in Neapol nowadays.

the film is not an action killer. it has some subtle humor, good actors, and tells five stories. so if you want to have relaxed, easy afternoon, and fancy traveling in time and space - 'go to Neapol'!
