Using a fragmentary technique, Nanni Moretti represents the crisis of the Italian young generation of 1977, through a series of short scenes. Young guys have conflicts with their parents, monotonous relationships with their friends and complicated love affairs with women. The do not believe in '68 ideals anymore and do not find other inspiration and passions, so what they do, is simply living. But Moretti's very sarcastic and cruel style easily leads to laugh, to smile, to think. The dialogs are very funny and the characters are so hilarious. Moretti filmed his first movie in 16mm. This movie costed 180 millions of Italian Liras (about 90,000 Dollars) but it earned 2 billions of Liras (about 1 million Dollars). Not bad, if you think that it was the first movie of a not-known director. In conclusion, a great cult-movie.
