a complex generational view of 70's
6 March 1999 | by (Firenze, italy) – See all my reviews

The movie is a little cult in Italy. Some incredible scenes like the dialogue with the girl that doesn't create anything of concrete, the scream of "ecce bombo" or the poet friend of the student are great ironic suggestions to a new kind of cinema founded by Nanni Moretti.
