Fun, sweet featurette (49 minutes) about a 15 year old ("let's say 16") boy who likes to take an industrial approach to courting. His plan for making the most of time at a party is to draw up a list of all the boys, then ask each girl to pick the boy they want to make out with!

A worthy short film from one of Italy's best-kept directorial secrets. It was made for TV, but you'd never guess that from the quality on display. Definitely worth checking out.
