Enjoyable teen featurette
10 December 2004 | by (Limerick,Ireland) – See all my reviews

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! But when a new girl enters his life, industry is forgotten and he finds himself dreaming romantically, especially in the lead-up to New Year's Eve. But, this being an Olmi movie, happiness isn't quite as straightforward as it seems ...

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.
