Storyline

A bunch of students live in an apartment in Bologna, during the 70's. This is a 24-hour sample of their ordinary life, where, between marjuana, school, university, girls and political contrasts, spectators can get a nice and colourful picture of that time, of those people and of their ideas and problems. Crazy, halucinated, somehow "Trainspotting Italian style", this movie was taken from comic strips by Andrea Pazienza and it respects very well their atmosphere and style.

In memory of Andrea "Paz" Pazienza
22 October 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Andrea Pazienza was an Italian comic writer, and with his art was the best reporter for the Italian riots of the '70s.

Through the late seventies Italy was shaken by youth movements, inspired to anarchism and pushed by a strong communist/neofascist struggle.

PAZ! mixes characters from the most famous stripes of Andrea, "Le straordinarie avventure di Penthotal" and "Zanardi" (if you are interested, look for "Pertini", too, a perfect satirical operation on one of the most loved Italian presidents): the actors are physically identical to the drawings, especially Zanardi and his friend Petrilli.

Their adventures follow strictly the plot of anarchy, hate, sadism, self destructive rebellion and drug-induced foolishness of the comics, and are a fresh wind in Italian film-making, usually very politically correct.

Andrea Pazienza died in 1988, 32 years old, less than a decade later from the creation of these fantastic characters, so this movie is quite a good way to get in touch with one of the king of Italian comics author.
