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 ...

Beautiful love story
25 March 2007 | by loriromSee all my reviews

"Tre metri sopra il cielo" is a really beautiful love story with an European stamina. I really recommend this movie if you plan a romantic evening. Babi seems a bit nerdy and a little too young, but the scenario is great and it will capture you right from the beginning. Also, the end of the movie is very European. Step is the dream of every adolescent girl: he is handsome, he likes to live on the edge and he rides a great motorcycle. Let's hope that the movie can be seen also in other countries than Italy and I'm expecting the sequel "Ho voglia di te". Italians have great food, great movies and talented actors. Enjoy the movie!
