Welcome to the Real World of Journalism!
14 November 2003 | by (Down UNder) – See all my reviews

The story evolves around Alfonso who signs on at a seedy tabloid newspaper, where he is assigned the police round. His initial horror at his colleagues' practices, both professional and personal, diminishes as he discovers their endearing and even admirable qualities. He develops a fondness for his boss which gradually blinds him to the squalor and amorality of tabloid journalism, until events provide a rude reminder.

This film gives you an insight of the real world and journalism. The actors are all great in their own ways especially Giovanni Ciccia who plays the lead character of Alfonso. He's very convincing, starting off as a humble, sensitive man and turning more like his boss, Faundez, played by the fantastic Gianfranco Brero. His quick tongue rude remarks usually with the word "f**k" are the funniest moments in the film.

Highly Recommended. This film deserves an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film...It's a pity it didn't even get nominated!
