Storyline

In southern Italy, Rollo, a nearly mute, large, muscular young man, is part of a crime gang. He wants to go on "an escort," to smuggle a ten-year-old Moroccan boy into Switzerland where adoptive parents supposedly await him. The third person on this road trip is Mauro, a middle-aged nurse brought into the deal by his boss, a hospital physician, to make a quick buck. They head for Cannobio on what should be a one-day trip, but complications soon arise. Car trouble, a Bulgarian prostitute and her daughter, the boy's constant desire to play soccer, and Rollo's flashbacks to a troubled and violent childhood combine to challenge them in a world without conscience.

Mauro a Fantastic character
21 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was all set to turn off the DVD just at the beginning due to the fact that it remind me of typical gangster movies "Italian style" and American ones too, but I stuck with it and I was so glad I did. First, I never heard of these actors, but talk about realism. Reminded me of some those great Italian movies of the 50's and 60's, and the stars of that era...Managni Mastronomi and De Sica. The actor playing Mauro was fantastic. If this was an American movie, he would be a shoo in for best actor award. He was some character. Another viewer here was commenting that this is not a 'homosexual' movie. I never got that impression at all when I rented it....just because you see a chest baring photo of one of the stars, makes you think that way? I could show a list of many actors doing the same pose....advertising their movies...Brando,Mature,Lancaster to name a few...and those movies were not a 'homosexual" movie. Sounds like someones disappointment. LOL And where did another reviewer mention that Mauro was a gay nurse male. Again, I must have missed something along the story line that indicated his character was gay. Was it taken for granted that he was a male nurse, so he has to be gay? Aside from that, this was a tough, provoking cinema. The girl was excellent too.
