Storyline

Rome: Steven(Step), and Roberta(Babi), belong to two completely different realities. She is a model student, has friends and courtiers and is divided between home, school, and private elite housewives. He is a hard-pasted thug and has troubled family relationships (especially with her mother) who spends her time in clandestine races in motion and raids. Fate will bring them to meet and fall in love, though she is the only witness to his aggression to a poor man who has split his glasses with a head and intends to testify against the boy. Their story takes off according to the logical banal of alchemy between opposites and the opposition of her parents. He is introduced to a world that is unknown to her, she begins to skip the school, to study less and to get hurt in trouble, but it seems that nothing is able to divide her from him. The two have never been in love before, but his violent and unscrupulous life will go back to her several times until, after the death of his great friend ...

I enjoyed it, others might understandably not
24 October 2011 | by moossaboossaSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie, in all it's inaccurate depictions of a romanticised Italy. It's perhaps not the best film I've ever seen, but it certainly merits a place in my favourite romantic movies list. While it's understandably not appropriate for everyone, for those who enjoy some sappy romance and a story loosely resembling a single woman's daydream or two- this will surely put a smile on your face. "Tre metri sopra il cielo" better understood if you speak Italian, or, at least have some sort of knowledge of Italian culture- sheds light on first loves, has a Romeo-Juliet forbidden love scenario and gives you a brief moment of butterflies in your stomach as you watch the convincing love between the two characters. While the movie had the potential to be better (by eliminating that annoying Radio presenter that narrates, for a start) for what it was -the story of an unconventional relationship between socialite and bad boy- it delivered very well. The acting was good, the filming quite beautiful and the script pretty standard. I will reiterate that this IS Italian, and so it probably won't be as effective to those who don't speak the language. It really isn't as wordy as other films, and the words that are spoken are intended for a sort of romantic impact- easily achieved in Italian, a very romantic language, not as easily translated into English. But very good nonetheless, definitely worth watching (With an open mind!).
