Bravo to Placido and Dionisi
23 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

The story of a working-class family in Genoa, both father and son struggle with meaninglessness, frustration expressed in different ways, and an inability to understand one another. The on-screen chemistry between Michele Placido and Stefano Dionisi really *makes* this film...and the rest of the cast isn't too shoddy, either. Hard to find outside Italy, but worth the effort.
