Storyline

After their award winning documentary, 'Suddenly, Last Winter', Luca and Gustav are back. This time they have to decide: should they stay in Italy, or leave it, like so many of their friends have done already. Looking at some defining Italian icons, they go on a emotional trip on a old Fiat 500 through Italy, to look behind the cliches and to discover, what's left of the famous Italian way of life, confronting a glorious pas, a shaky present and an uncertain future.

North vs. South
26 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

European Style that is. The situation in Italy is not easy. But other countries from the south are facing similar problems, so if you are from one of those regions you may recognize a few things in your own culture. But even if you are not from Europe or are not familiar with some "traditions" from Italy this documentary is really more than solid in making it all very accessible.

There are the positive aspects of a country and there are the negative aspects of it. The movie tries to cover as much as possible. And although I'm not an insider and there might be even more to it (which I hope will be covered in deleted scenes on a feature release), the documentary is not just serious, but also very light. There is no better way to make people understand, what is going on, then through comedy (from time to time that is). I really enjoyed watching this and it might open a few eyes too
