Amici per la pelle- the story of a friendship.
1 November 2011 | by (Swansea, Wales) – See all my reviews

This is the story of the friendship of two Italian schoolboys, admirably played by Geronimo Maynier(Mario) and Andrea Scire(Franco). Mario is a lively extrovert from a happy home, Franco is a lonely, more introverted boy who moves from hotel to hotel with his diplomat father. In a series of incidents at their homes and at school we see a happy friendship develop. There follows a rift in the friendship and finally there is a parting. The film is brilliantly directed by Franco Rossi. I first saw the film back in the 1950's and was very moved by it. I do not know if it has been issued on Video or DVD- it certainly should be for it deals in a simple and unmelodramatic way with the strong emotions of adolescent friendships as we have seen more recently in films like "Stand By Me".
