the brilliantly told story of a guy my age, living in my city...what more could i ask?
30 October 2001 | by (Torino, Italy) – See all my reviews

I wish many of you will get the chance to see this movie. Why? 'Cause it's about a generation (mine...i was born in 1974) with very few things known for sure, full of doubts, asking for much and getting very little. Because it's been shot in my own town, Torino, in Italy: a wonderful city not yet appreciated as it should be, and here, in the movie, elegantly and properly photographed and shown. Because the story is brilliantly told, because the characters are as real as they can be in a movie. Because it's funny but not stupid. Because, though not flawless, it's a good movie, modern enough in its layout and accurate enough in the way it's written to be enjoyed by a wide (not decerebrate) audience.
