Hot sex, cold Milano city, beautiful people. Great movie.
17 March 2009 | by davidtraversa-1See all my reviews

Several characters and their personal dramas are fully and meticulously portrayed in this excellent film.

Excellent everything, director, actors --all of them! Photography (Milano shown in a very cold and gray way, almost devoid of warm and humanity). Money --small and big schemes elaborated to get it-- permeates this movie thoroughly and involves everybody in different stories.

Stories that little by little come together as pieces of a large and intricate puzzle, many times criss-crossing their individual paths, even without their knowledge.

But there is no problem, every story is perfectly followed and explained to its final completion. Very clearly. Although the editing jumps from one story to another (there are at least six stories), one is never confused by the fast cutting.

We are allowed to follow these problematic lives, become very interested in their possible destinies, some sad, some better, but in general downbeat.

Like in all great metropolis, where making a living becomes usually very difficult, especially if you don't have social status or powerful acquaintances to back up your dreams of grandeur, we are shown here the sad consequences of the hard encounter with reality.

Very enjoyable film! Some of the characters are truly beautiful people, so the 'candy for the eye' element is an unquestionable welcome addition to this excellent movie.

Very, very absorbing and entertaining film.
