Trivia

When the brothers, both stoned, drive on the Autobahn at night, the car seems to fly. It shows the license plate "DU-DU" (DU for Duisburg), same as the VW Beetle "Dudu" from the German 1970s "Käfer" movie series (inspired by the US "Herbie" movies). See more »

touching and simple
26 July 2004 | by (Tel aviv) – See all my reviews

really excellent movie, one of the best i've seen. Touching and simple

  • just like life, sometimes you cry sometimes you laugh and it's just


beautiful. not too much of anything, just as it's suppose to be. Really loved the idea of the movie, noone is bad or good, all or just people, sometimes make mistakes mostly because of society's pressure, everyone tries to stay strong and some succeed more than others and the most important thing is that you don't have reasons to get angry - you can do it, but eventually the anger goes away and then you to need to let love come back in although it's hard, there lies the true happiness.

Great actors and cast, the movie really gets you into the feeling of the movie.

nice nice nice.

I recommend to see it, especially if you like to see italians' life...
