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 AM NOT SURE... It could be interesting for Non-Italians as a cultural anthropological research project, but, as for me, it was painful to watch. It portrays the Italian "Coming of Age" phenomenon extremely well, so well that I felt sick at the thought of how unhappy and deceived people can allow themselves to be. In fact, I do not hate the movie itself, but the moral condition Italy is in, and that this flick reveals so well.
