One of the best film I have ever seen
27 September 2002 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I think this is the best film of Salvatores, better than Mediterraneo too. It always considered Marakech Express a film full of poetry and I feel joy and melancholy every time I watch it. This films seems to tell us that, in spite of time which goes by, it is always possible to live again feelings of our youth, if we really want it.
