Storyline

Luigi è dirigente di un' industria di Torino ed è originario della Calabria, dove torna per le vacanze. Durante uno di questi viaggi conosce Rosario, quindicenne orfano di madre e con il padre in prigione. Chiede allora a don Lorenzo, che dirige una comunità di ragazzi 'difficili' a Torino, di prendere Rosario con sè. Nella nuova città il ragazzo dovrà affrontare il rapporto con una realtà per lui nuova e difficile, entrando anche in contatto con Matteo, il viziato figlio di Luigi. Due mondi a confronto, due realtà sociali distanti fra loro, un difficile rapporto padre-figlio. Written by rosebud6

Probably the worst film of 2000
2 May 2001 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Preferisco il rumore del mare is probably the worst film of the year 2000. The plot is non-existent, the acting is too bad for words and the photography is abonimable. It's certainly one of the ugliest films ever made. Some scenes are outright ridiculous. Can you imagine boys of a reform school spending New Year's Eve playing bingo and protesting against "the priest" (the film reminded me of Boys Town) that they have to stop the game because it's getting late? Or a priest playing basketball after having spent the whole night looking for a missing beggar woman and then refusing to give advice to a man in distress simply because he's too tired? Preferisco ... is not an arty-farty or alternative film, it's just a bad movie. Spend your money on something else.
