This is the best I have seen lately. First, the director knows how to film nowaday's Italy, its streets, its café, restaurants etc... in a manner that you feel like going there, everything seems so vivid and beautiful. We are in Rome, a town that I have never come to, but after seeing that movie, it's like you had been there, and certainly feel like going back. But, it would not be so interesting if this was the only interest of that film. The main thing that really attracted me during it, was its characters, whom are so attaching, so real, and beautifully acted by such great actors. I found their playing subtil, well-balanced. The dialogues are nevertheless the best part of this film. It is true that it's a melodramatic movie, but in a good way, a way that should be moving you, and even be a little bit instructive, about love, friendship, family, etc... Of course, I wouldn't have liked it, if there wasn't a touch of humour, of comedy, and this is again one of the best thing in this film : it moves you, but it mainly (from time to time) is funny, never it is pontificating. So, for those whom like delicate, tender film, about friendship, life, and death, and all those themes, I would strongly recommend that one, you should not be disappointed. This is definitely one of the best movie actually on theater.
