Story of young and shy Piero growing up in a popular area of Livorno (Leghorn) that has the same name as Piero's nickname ("Ovosodo" - "Boiled egg") from his childhood until marriage and coming of age. Mostly a story about all the people that changed his life: Giovanna, the teacher that pushes him to study, his best friend Tommaso, his great love Lisa who will definitively sail away. It's also a story about all the disillusions and compromises in finding one's place in life.Written by

I was lucky enough to catch this film at a local film festival and I'm very glad I did. It is both warm and funny and in many ways much more real than most "coming of age" films you see. It was one of the few films I've seen where I walked out of the theater with the intention of telling everyone I knew to go and see it.
