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

Thank God it lasted only 90 minutes!

I was in for quite a surprise at the last sneak preview when I got to see this film. Since they're not paying you back when you leave, I decided to give this movie some credit. However, all credit was lost when the opening credits were over... You have to know that this is not a bad film because it's non-english. There are many good foreign-language films (even excellent ones too)and I must stress out that this wasn't the film's problem. That shouldn't be a problem! I'm only writing this so people who liked it shouldn't start screaming that I don't appreciate "something else". But this was just plain bad, in every aspect. The acting was oh so terrible, especially by the two lead characters. I don't think that their characters required them to look like zombies, so... The film was also very uninvolving. I don't even think you can say something like involving or not. There was not a single appealing scene in it. I can't remember ever having seen a film that looked as artificial as this one. And all the characters are awfully stereotypical too. The ruthless businessman who starts to change, his rebellious son, etc. And in the end, nothing has happened, the motives of the characters are still unexplained and the only thing that went through my mind afterwards was: "I'm being robbed here!". There re also scenes in it that are so hilariously bad, that you just can't take it serious. In the category "It's a foreign language film so it must be good" this is another entry. Just don't believe it! 3/10 (and I mean it: this is not an overrated film, this is mind-numbingly bad!)
