Storyline

David studies Natural Sciences at the University of Pisa and is about to pass his final exam. He plans to move to the United States to have further education there. But then he gets a flyer from a girl. It's Viola, who he met three years ago after a dinner with friends. He has thought about her ever since. Viola is a member of a beginning student anti-globalist group, called Mompracem after David's suggestion. They are preparing for a protest at the G8-summit in Genoa. While David tries to come closer to Viola, who is already in a relationship with group leader Luca, he gets more and more involved with Mompracem. So deep that the progress of his study might falter.

Just give it a try...
4 January 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie and must comment that it's a real easy-to-watch movie. The beautiful language (Italian) is showed at it's best, in fast and loud conversations full of emotion. But I guess you have to be non-Italian to notice it :D. The title explains how the characters live their lifes, now or never. I have no material to compare this Italian movie to except for La Vita è bella but that's to much of a different story. Oh well, it's about students during the G8 in Genua and how a guy turns from a typical straight A student to a protesting, world loving rebel. Offcourse there is a girl, a bad guy, or a whole bunch of 'em and a best friend. The play is mostly in Pisa, so enjoy the sight :D
