This is not really a realistic movie, but you wouldn't have expected it to be realistic. Handsome actors in their mid-twenties perform as teenagers in a boarding school.
The main character is the girl Luca, dressing up as a boy (quite convincing, actually) and taking the place of a boy who prefers the career of a runaway. Chico, her new best friend, falls in love with her (after some unsuccessful sex adventures) and believes he's gay. But he's not gay, only the principal's assistant is - by the way the only teacher, apart from the mean principal, figuring at least as supporting actor. Lessons don't take place, and in fact the only activity apart from running after girls or alcohol is boxing. Luca is a great boxer, and this is useful when the mean principal is about to expel another pupil (Jo) and the Head Boy offers his vote against the expulsion provided Luca survives well a boxing match with him.
Apparently, this movie is the pilot of a series. I suppose this series will be overly successful. It has all ingredients of an average soap opera. And a hilarious story is better than an authentic one.
