Best Italian comedy of the last 5 years
12 March 2014 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Finally an Italian comedy that eschews the stylistic elements that have been imposed in recent years with the so-called "Cinepanettoni"! This movie works so well because of many factors: it makes you laugh, has a cast in a state of grace, it has a nearly flawless script, it's well directed and, unusual for an Italian comedy, it's very close to the technical quality standards of international movies. Also, as all good comedies should do, the movie addresses the contemporary issue of young people who, despite being far too skilled, are not able to make a living because of the scarcity of opportunities. Not bad for a first-time director!
