I like Francesca Archibugi since "Mignon è partita" and "Verso sera" (with the magic Marcello Mastroianni), her eye looks always deeply inside growth and relations between youth people and adult ones - but she's also able to take light glances on life and problems... I loved this movie too, despite stupidity and non-sensitivity of Rome's teenagers... but then India and Kerala surely take the audience to a wiser vision of life, and love can make (A)Pollo(nio)'s young heart to do the right thing and call back Chiara's husband... OK I think it's clear I don't like the simple equation cinema=amusement - but this film contains also funny situations and a little humour... and Chiara-Giovanna Mezzogiorno shows all of her wonderful beauty, as well as Angela Finocchiaro acts at her best - unfortunately the role just can't permit Anna Galliena to do the same... PS I think I saw a child delivery for the first time on a movie screen: and this made me love "Lezioni di volo" even more!
