This is simply beautiful. Director Muccino give us a deep look into parenthood, age and other things. In one side is Carlo, played beautifully by Stefano Accorsi, and his friends. In the opposite side are the women, the mother (excellent characterization by Stefania Sandrelli) of Giulia another excellent performance by this actress that honestly I can't recall her name. They are going to have a baby. And that is very important for a mother and a father but a little incident with some schoolgirl could throw all away. Couldn't be possible?. And there is more, Carlo's friends are going to leave their girls even that one hasn't got a girl. They are going (by boat) to the end of the world. The deepness is awesome. That could be all. All the character's RELATIONSHIP are going down. Director is better than Cantet (Human Ressources) in exploring those things. And sometimes he takes that relationship to a limit beyond the imaginable. The setting is good, the music and the casting are superb and to conclude this is a movie about taking responsibility at the age of 30.
My rating of course due to all those facts is 10 or maybe 40 out of 10.
