Storyline

In Milan, Matteo is an underemployed physicist, giving the occasional lecture at a university while working at a PR firm where he knows he'll be fired. Without his really trying, two women are attracted to him, a blond and a brunette. The blond is Angelica; they meet smoking on the office rooftop. To his surprise, she has clout in the company and soon has him flying off (with her) to make presentations. The brunette is Beatrice, a new flatmate, hoping for a teaching job in the national service. Angelica dangles a posting with her in Barcelona; Beatrice is simply Beatrice. Will Matteo figure out what he wants - and decide before opportunity passes him by? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Life is what happens when you are busy in other plans

Many youngsters 30 years old live in Italy with a revenue lower than 1000 euro for month. Almost poor, often still living with parents, light years away from building up a family. Poor present and no future in Italy, which is one of the country where parents are richer than sons. Matteo, in this scenario, choose not to go away. Better a life here (i am Italian) than luck abroad. Better a friend, a beginning love and poverty than career away from them, from his own self. Unwise choice could be. I thought it at first but after all i agree with writers: an unwise choice let you live where you feel well, loved. No need of competition, to be a winner when you can be yourself whoever you are. And... i almost forgot film is funny with many young Italian actors. I loved it.
