A Sweet and Sour Movie
6 December 2001 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Santa Maradona tells the story of two 'young' men living in Turin and trying to start their professional life after studying at university. Their way to live appears funny (the couple Accorsi / De Rienzo plays very well together), but also sad and void of points of reference. They communicate very well with each other, thanks also to their common passion for football, but their relationship with the rest of the world is difficult, not clear and not definite.

It is a clever movie about the difficulty to live, to find oneself identity and to pursue one's interests and objectives. Stefano Accorsi even leaves the girlfriend he loves due to his unsatisfaction with himself. Very real situations.
