Storyline

Anna and Francesca are both fourteen years old and live in a working-class neighborhood of Piombino. Face to them, off the shores, they can see the Elba Island with its gorgeous beaches whereas behind them stands the steel plant, which shrinks the lives of the district dwellers. Alessio, Anna's big brother, is a worker there and wants happiness on the spot, unlike his father who has left the plant and who seems none the less for it. Elena, Alessio's great love, seemed to have escaped immurement thanks to her studies but she has become an executive at the personnel department of the factory where stuff cut is decided. All the same, Anna and Francesca are on holiday and are determined to take advantage of this interlude of freedom. Written by Guy Bellinger

An insight in the Italian factory workers marginal life, and a picture about how growing up sure is complicated.
22 October 2014 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

In the industrial area around Piombino, a few miles away from one of the jewels of the Mediterranean Sea (Elba island), smoking, dark, rusted foundries host a world where humanity has its own rules and expectations. In this context, the movie shows the hard life permeating the difficult relationships that set up in family, friendship and love, with a particular look into the hard task of growing up. The movie is raw, direct, and has some interesting moments, and the general dramatic development is well defined, despite its loose appearance. Perhaps a little excess of indulgence to voyeurism is the only major flaw of this otherwise interesting movie. Above everything, the wonderful soundtrack, including tracks from Comaneci and Amycanbe, which have the rare gift of changing everything they touch into gold.
