Finally Adult and intelligent comedy, sweet and intelligent, that also show a Milan very different from all the stereotype of fashion, work and "Berlusconism". Someone in other comments said "So Silly, So Italian".. I am living in Sydney as the Autor of the comments... If someday I'll direct a movie about Australia probably I'll focus on the maximum expression on the local culture as Barbies, footy, drunken riot, and strong racism against all Mediterranean cultures... probably all the European audience will find "so silly so Australian"... Actually something very similar to what they think watching film as "He Died with a Felafel In His Hand".... if watched in a superficial way is very easy think that is just about "adult misbehaving like five years old"
