It's an hard life
7 July 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Very good looking movie. The meaning of this movie is inside our lives:it's in the beautiful smile of Saimir, in the work of his father. It's in the Italian girl he met and he loose. It's in his crying eyes. Munzi is an artist, a great artist: this is the proof. Saimir is great, his father probably has the most difficult role, but he plays well. It's a movie that we should show in the school,once a year. We have to learn from Saimir,from his life.In Italy this movie had an important meaning, because there are some problems about people from Albania, but these are two hours where we can consider to solve them.In any case we are waiting for the next movie of Munzi, I wish with another interesting story.
