I had a wonderful time watching this movie, although I can understand how other people, from a different age group or cultural background, could feel differently. I watched it on cable by pure accident, on a lazy Sunday morning, in bed, with my wife. We had never heard about it before.
Although the story is thin, it echoed on us. The culture, ambiance and events, although caricatured, had a lot to do with our lives and our friends' lives. There are obvious silly moments but the movie talked to us. We ended up teasing each other, making analogies with things in our past, remembering our moments and our friends.
All in all, it warmed our hearts and we had a great time watching it. Most other movies do not reward us in such a way.
BTW, Michela Quattrociocche (Niki), probably 18 when the movie was made, is delicious to look at and worth watching. According to my wife, the guy (Raoul Bova) is great too, and better looking than the girl. I disagree.
