The story of a tribe called quest for love
19 August 1999 | by (Basel) – See all my reviews

Imma and Teresa are best friends. They have to take lousy jobs in order to earn a living (e.g. dressing up as "Dutch girls" with yellow hair,waitresses in a dubious nite club etc.) and sometimes they go to the supermarket in order to acquire goods in a non-legal way. Teresa is in love with a Jazz musician, until she goes to Paris to visit him -- she then falls in love with the man who drives her to the capital of France. Imma, too, who is the main character and who has some childhood flashbacks during the film, is on a constant quest for love. First she encounters a guy who turns out to be a sexist, then she goes to bed with a man who tells as many lies as she does -- but in fact, she knows all along the way that she actually loves someone else, namely the fireman who saved her from drowning and/or suffocating. After witnessing the rather nasty and brutal fight between an obviously unmarried couple -- she tried to sell the wife a set of "How to learn English without actually learning"-tools -- she finally finds the man of her dreams who saved her. They immediately become a couple, but when she tells him that she's pregnant, he panics and leaves for Sicily. But in the end....well, it's a COMMEDIA! Not a TRAGEDIA, DRAMMA, or anything of that sort. Yes, there are a few rather sad moments in _In principio erano le mutande_, because it's also a film about "a slice of life", but there's also a good dose of "piece of cake" in it. Enjoy!
