I recently went to see the Italian movie "ma che ci faccio qui!" in New York City and I liked it very much. It is the story of a teenager wanting to take a trip with his buddies but found obstacles along the way that turned into lessons about life. A comedy but with very good messages. The movie was brilliantly directed by Francesco Amato. This is his first long film. I was also very amazed at the talent of these young newcomer actors. I laughed a lot. The other members of the audience enjoyed the movie as well, so much that it won the first price at the N.I.C.E. City of Florence Film Festival which is held once a year in New York and in San Francisco. I think it is an awesome movie. Definitely a must see! I hope it will play in more theaters here in the states and hopefully on DVD as well!
