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

Strangely Hypnotic
4 September 2000 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

The strength of this movie is it's enigmatic characters; a stern father and his rebellious teen taking under their wings a studious southern boy who's mother has been murdered. All these characters seemed to keep a secret. There's very little plot, however, we delight in seeing these people evolve. The lack of closure at the end might annoy some viewers.
