Ineffectual, funny 30-something
14 January 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

It is true that "Amici miei" (My Friends) could actually give a clue to better understand the mood of this film. But another one that comes to my mind is "L'ultimo bacio" (The Last Kiss). Why? Because they are both, in a way, a harsh comment over a generation of ineffectual 30-year-old eternal university students, who had become a case-study of contemporary Italian sociology. A generation in which the film-director, Leonardo Pieraccioni, had the self-deprecation of putting himself as well. Well-played, funny and sad at the same time, "I laureati" was shot before "Il Ciclone", which had lost the melancholic touch and actually launched Pieraccioni in the big business as a comedy film director.
