Great actors for a quite good script.
6 September 2005 | by (Ravenna, Italy) – See all my reviews

In the south of Italy, two men couldn't be more different. Vito (Lo Cascio) is honest but naive; his brother-in-law, Toni (Rubini), is sharp but a dubious citizen too. There's never been any kind of friendship between them, but the stealing of Vito's car and the hunt to recover it will act as excuse to discover themselves.

Alessandro Piva directs two skilled actors with expert touch through the right thing: overcome the differences to become friends; with a music doing a great job.

And yet...The script is at the same time too poor for exacting audiences, but even not a comedy. Personally, I wouldn't wasted time to characterize well-known stereotypes (the criminals), and I would gave more shape to the story. The touching ending deserved more care.

Anyway, a lesson for all the high-budget films. Good.

>>>> 3 stars out of 5
