This story is about two construction-workers, the brothers Cosimo (Valerio Mastandrea) and Elia (Elio Germano), who are hired by the famous singer, Fausto Mieli (Gianni Morandi), to do some work on his rural mansion, before he's due to make his big career comeback-concert in his home city.
It all seems like an easy enough job, but when the brothers get there, they become the talk of the town, because they are foreign out-of-towners, and the small community doesn't like strangers. Things get even worse, when Elia notices a dead wolf in the back of a van belonging to a gang of local poachers, and tells Fausto about it.
It turns out, Fausto is the forest protector, and can't stand poachers, so he takes it up with the local mayor, much to the annoyance of the gang. Matters gets even worse, when Elia begins flirting with the local young beauty Adriana (Francesca Rabbi), which her wanna-be boyfriend, the poacher Davide (Lorenzo Rivola) certainly doesn't like.
Meanwhile, Cosimo has a couple of unfortunate encounters with Fausto's wife, Moira (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), who is disabled, and sits in a wheelchair. All these small events leads up to a tragic climax, in the middle of Fausto's comeback-show.
The movie was pretty good, interesting characters and beautiful locations. However, the plot was somewhat predictable, and a lot of the things that happened, could've easily been avoided, if the main characters just used a bit of common sense, which annoyed me as a viewer. But overall, a good movie, albeit far from perfect.
