good Italian cinema
13 May 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie in a Italian cinema tour. The story is very easy going and entertaining. It has a few moments where the scenes seem to go on forever but in general it keeps you interested in the story telling. The performances are great as well as the directors ability to combine the drama of the characters situation with very funny moments. The story tells about a man Guido, that begins a relationship with a single mom, Anton, and starts having money trouble, decides to rob a store and gets sent to prison where he meets two inmates planning to escape. For some reason he ends up tagging along during the escape. The story then develops around the run and the search for Anton. Good movie, good acting, worth seeing.
