interesting with some ambiguities
8 April 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Pupi Avati is one of the best Italian director in the way he draft the scenarios, also if often at the end of his movies a little bit of delusion remain, maybe as the "ensemble" needed a different rewriting. This movie is about love. The love for the music in first: during the jazz performances the evidence of this feeling is strong. The love for the friendship, this strange link that sometimes led to unpredictable behaviors. The love for a woman, and is here were the movie let the bitter taste. Maybe for the director this feeling is more difficult to be described in real terms, in my opinion. I have enjoyed more other movies of Avati, but I believe it worth the ticket price.
