Storyline

Silvio, sedici anni, sembra più interessato alle ragazze che alla politica e, quando il liceo che frequenta viene occupato, cerca di cogliere l'occasione giusta per trovare l'anima gemella. Lui e Ponzi, amici e compagni di classe, si danno da fare e vivono molto le ansie dell'amore e del sesso. Silvio sogna il grande amore e, dopo una prima bruciante sconfitta, a causa anche dei compagni di classe troppo pettegoli, vive l'esperienza dell'occupazione tra i litigi con i genitori e una carica della polizia. Ma , nonostante tutto e quasi per caso, arriva per lui il primo innamoramento e la prima esperienza sessuale. Written by rosebud6

The Sudden Fires of Adolescence that Create Maturity
28 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

COME TE NUSSUNO MAI translates from Italian to "like you anyone ever" or one's first experiences in life are unique solely to you, never having been experienced by anyone in history. BUT FOREVER IN MY MIND is simply a quote lifted from this film about the agonies and ecstasies of adolescence and to fully appreciate the story from the adolescent aspect, the Italian title is far more appropriate.

As written by brothers Gabriele and Silvio Muccino (also Gabriele directs and Silvio stars) this radiant little film covers a day in the lives of Italian highschool kids caught up in a youthful rebellion against their school's policies while at the same time sorting out the nascent changes in their burgeoning sexuality. The boys languish over their expected, anxiously awaited first physical encounter while the girls (at times on split screen just to make the comparison more strongly) relate their feelings about first time encounters with the boys. The two stories run parallel: student riots involve the police and of course eventually their parents, the two sources of authority the kids naturally challenge, and the taste of honey one of the boys achieves which becomes a gossiped, bloated misdirected moment of braggadocio that eventually leads to the serendipitous beautifully innocent discovery of teenage love.

The young boys include Silvio (Silvio Muccino) and his talkative confident Ponzi (Giuseppe Sanfelice), the one sexually active lad Martino (Simone Pagani) while the girls include the experienced Valentina (Giulia Carmignani) partner of Martino, and Claudia (Giulia Steigerwalt), Silvio's longtime friend who dreams of a relationship beyond friendship. The remainder of the cast (especially Enrico Silvestrin and Giulia Ciccone who are splendid as Silvio's 'ex-hippie' parents) is quite strong. The parallel between the physical rebellion in the school incident and the hormonal rebellion within this collected group's bodies is a true sense of cinematic metaphor and makes for a fast-paced, humorous, touching coming of age story that is a joy to watch! In Italian with English subtitles. Grady Harp
