A comedy about the flow of the time and how to live it
32 Dicembre (December 32th) is a very nice comedy. It is divided in three episodes: three delicate stories about the flow of the time and how to live it. This movie tells the common people consider crazy the men and the women that have a non-conform idea of the time, but they aren't crazy: they just live their lives with more intensity.
The movie is played and co-written by Luciano De Crescenzo, a Italian everyday philosophy book writer. In his book he describes the "Italianity" and the "Neapoletanity". The Italian conception of living the flow of the time is one of the most important themes.
The movie is almost unknown also in Italy, but that's a pity because is one of the best Italian comedy of the eighties
