Certainly not a bad movie
26 February 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Rosario is an 11 year old Italian kid, who takes care of his senile grandmother. He and his friends spend their days crossing busy highways, hanging around, playing pool... He also helps out in a commune for women. But the environment of the poor southern city of Naples is hostile and he enters into a downward spiral of hostility and crime. The storytelling is fragmented, it basically consists of Rosario sitting on the metro having flashbacks, but not in chronological order. Although it's maybe not always that easy to follow, the changing appearance of Rosario provides some help for orientation. I found the film quite touching, raw and confronting. As told at the and, this film was inspired by reality. The acting by Gianluca Di Gennaro was impressive and the cinematography was nice. Although maybe not perfect it's certainly a good film by directors Andrea and Antonio Frazzi.
