Storyline

Two neighbors, young Vincenzo and old Mr. Bartoloni, are utterly unhappy. On the one hand Vincenzo must lead a miserable and frustrating life as he cannot find any regular job, despite his Arts degree. On the other hand, Mr. Bartoloni is fed up with his despotic wife: the woman who used to be a beautiful artist is now a fat and shabby drunkard. The two men meet on a particularly sad night and, during an outburst Mr. Bartoloni asks Vincenzo to help him to get rid of his wife by simulating an accident with the promise of a considerable amount of money. At night Vincenzo can't sleep: Mr. Bartoloni wasn't joking and he is in a desperate need for money... One day, Mrs. Bartoloni is found dead for apparently accidental reasons. Walking up and down his now quiet and deserted flat, Mr. Bartoloni feels desperate. The money he kept hidden in a box has disappeared. His thoughts grow and become monsters ... finally he decides to denounce Vincenzo as the author of the crime. Vincenzo is arrested ... Written by Anonymous

unreal reality
5 February 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

An unambitious movie, that has the greatness of the humility. A study of characters.

Due to its topic, this is a movie condemned to fail, but that remains as a solid piece of work, soft, raw and sheer. Certainly, original. Most of the public will hate to see it,due to its pessimism.

Alberto Sordi gives a solid performance. To watch him in some night scenes is somewhat terrifying. And Persico isn't bad as the young man of the title. Never a young man without ambitions was better portrayed. Sara Franchetto is nice as an Italian mother.

7/10
