Storyline

Italo è un quarantenne milanese poco incline a crescere. Senza un lavoro fisso, vive con la mamma e la zia. Fanatico del rugby, vive unicamente per questa sua passione. Fidanzato da sempre con Rita, di professione dog-sitter, la trascina nelle trasferte e, maniacalmente, le misura i battiti cardiaci prima, dopo e durante i momenti di intimità. La vita di Italo cambia quando, esonerato dalla squadra per limiti di età, accetta l'incarico di insegnante di educazione fisica in un collegio di campagna. Si ritrova cosi in Romagna, in una comunità francescana fuori dal tempo. Padre Anselmo, aiutato dai due frati Padre Tommaso e Padre Sauro organizza questo collegio-convento piuttosto originale. E' un mondo popolato da ragazzini un pò asini e un pò naif, poco inclini ai tempi e modi della scuola tradizionale, guidati a sberle dallo stralunato Attilio. Un mondo abitato anche da asini veri, accuditi con cura da Anna, studentessa di veterinaria. Nel frattempo, Il Vaticano ha deciso di ... Written by rosebud6

A sweet and romantic Italian story
18 January 2006 | by (Venice, Italy) – See all my reviews

It isn't the prototype of the Italian comedy: "Asini" ("Donkeys") speak about a group of young guys without parents or considered from their parents out of time, out of society that live in a farm house managed by "strange" monks that teach them the beauty of the simple things. Italo (C. Bisio) is a rugby player that is very similar to the guys of the farm house: no serious work, no serious girlfriend...he's not happy of his life because he hasn't find his role in the society. One day Italo received the proposal to teach gym to the guys of this strange farm house; he accepted, ignoring that this experience will be useful also for him. Guys will learn how to face life using their repressed rage, and Italo will find his place and his dimension in the world. Very soft, very sweet...very Italian!!!

p.s.: sorry for my incorrect English...!
