Not great but fun to watch
27 January 2003 | by (Philadelphia, USA) – See all my reviews

While not a great social commentary, the playful portrayal of tension between the 4 protagonists makes it fun to watch. Andrea is purposefully like many other Italian young adults, living the fact of unemployment and getting no where even when he tries; his chance (too forced?) meeting with Dolores is a distraction and test of his commitment to growing up. His room mate and other friends also help drag him down. Can he break out?

It's also refreshing to find the true-to-life non resolution of relationships; it's use of language is also street real.
