I have seen tons of better movies but I found this little film enjoyable, set in Pescara, a town of the region Abruzzo on the Italian east coast, provides a different setting from the average stereotypes.The protagonists don't look too absurd for such a small production and I must say I absolutely loved the female protagonist: Miryam Catania is a wonderful, wonderful girl and I will definitely look around for new movies where she would play a role. The movie is somehow very sensitive, and romanticism poors out every now and then, even if the plot gives a certain sense of deja-vu. anyway...I liked it and I don't even know why .
