Is it a waste of time to watch two teenagers waste their time?
In an Italian urban area, the two teenagers, Mimmo (Salvatore Ruocco) and Veronica (Francesca Riso), are forced to spend time together at an abandoned building, because Veronica has gotten into trouble, and Mimmo owes somebody a favor, and therefore has to babysit her, until her mafioso "guardian" can talk to her.
But during their time in the condemned building, their initial animosity becomes a friendship, as they roam the area together, and share thoughts and anecdotes. Veronica doesn't want to have anything to do with the mobsters that kidnapped her, so she frequently tries to escape, but when she becomes aware that Mimmo will be hurt if she flees, her view on things change a bit.. but will it be enough to keep her from running away? The two leading actors are very likable, and there's a good tension throughout the movie, as you never really know what will happen when the gangsters return, and their growing relationship along with the fear of the unknown will keep you watching to the end.
However, when looking back upon the movie, it is very forgettable, as nothing really exciting happens during the story.. it is a very enjoyable film though, so it is definitely recommended for people who loves movies with small casts, and adventurous settings in urban areas during the summer.
