Storyline

Walter is 20. He hasn't got a job, a girlfriend or any clear convictions. He rejects conventional values, notably his father's submissive acceptance of a life working in a factory as well as a social life, including sex (he is, self-consciously, a virgin). An on-and-off philosophy student, he'd like to be a committed nihilist but is too insecure. 'All Fall Down' paints a picture of Walter as he weakly tries to find his independence.

Quotes

Walter: In books, it's always fantastic with women. One glance and she's yours for life. Or for one night, which is just as good. Try to do that in real life and you'll end up behind bars. My peers, said the papers, started with oral sex at 14, went all the way at 16, had enough of women by 18 and became impotent or serial killers. To protect myself and others, I was a virgin, so I didn't have to worry about premature ejaculation.

A modern day masterpiece
18 January 2000 | by (torino, Italy) – See all my reviews

Intro: I always lived in Torino, but the month I went away to work in Rome they filmed this movie, half the people I know, were stand-by and some even said a couple of lines Main subject: Not being biased but this movie, is a true piece of art, of real history, this movie has real insight on the situtation, especially, went Valerio goes to look for a Job, it's really like that, and the teachers , and all the surrounding is really real, this movie has a steady background music by cult group C.C.C.P who then became know has C.S.I,this movie is really fast-paced but clear, and it's the kind of movie you don't mind watching twice in row. It's light and fast. Treat yourself and watch it. If you don't trust me, then watch it just for the music...
