Well, first of all I'm a fierce death penalty opposer... but this great debut by Alessandro Angelini hardly seems to indicate that really prison can cure your soul if you're an old criminal... neither Fabio, a professional as a prisoners assistant and teacher, for welfare services, can do really something to get his real father (which more than 20 years before left his family and little child - i.e. Fabio) at least to show some normal and human feelings...
...anyway I really loved this movie, and it's been a beautiful surprise to see lot of people watching it despite of colossal Apocalypto...
...and there's at least one great actor: it's Giorgio Colangeli as the old prisoner (Fabio's father): not just the only one good performance in this movie, but surely excellent!
Hope this to be the beginning of a great career for director Angelini!
