just a small, geographic, statement on the comment
17 July 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

nice script, it summarizes very well the whole movie, with his 3 characters' plot. I just wanted to point out that Enzo would like to go to Poland,Cracow and not in Praha (back then it belonged to Czechoslovakia) I agree, it's a real masterpiece, it shows without restraint some of the positive (just a few, indeed) and negative sides of the so-called "italiano medio" who spends half of his life close to the mamma, but at the same time is always ready to pick up any good-looking foreign girl that has the good taste to smile upon him. I mean Leo and Enzo are so different, the first is so shy, the latter is so outrageous but they could be a sort of "doctor Jekyll & mister hide"...2 people in 1!
