Luigi Maria Burruano,
This Italian comedy tells the story of 4 teenage Italian punks in the first years of '90s. All the friends are named Antonio. Starting from this, we get a nice and not boring movie about "rebellion" in a small city while Gulf War is coming to change their life... The story is quite simple but it works fine. Flavio Pistilli is great as Antò Lu Purk (in the city slang, "the pig") and the others Antò are also perfect. "La guerra degli Antò" is not an usual Italian movie: someone could compare it to "SLC Punk!" but in my opinion, the Italian film is much better and realistic. What is sure is that Europeans will like it more than Americans.
La guerra degli Antò = the Antò's war (literal translation)
