I am not Italian, however have watched the film and enjoyed it. I lived in Italy for several years and had the opportunity to observe the culture and the people of different regions.
I am a great Accorsi fan and have watched most of the films he has been involved with, I have to add that he is an underrated actor and ought to be hitting it high by becoming internationally based.
The film RadioFreccia reflects the true lives of the young italians living in the north of the country at that time as well as today. With the effects of religion, politics, unemployment and social exclusion the country seems to be cornering the young italians in exactly this way. There is nothing for them to do.. Hence the communist movement among the Northern Younger generation: drugs, assault, violence, sexuality, drug abuse, satanic rituals are amongst the daily lives of these people. Emilio Reggio being the heart of these acts.
Parallel to this the film represents the obstacles that young italians face; the family pressure and the religion.
I stand up and applaud Ligabue for magnificent and accurate storytelling
