In Milan, Matteo is an underemployed physicist, giving the occasional lecture at a university while working at a PR firm where he knows he'll be fired. Without his really trying, two women are attracted to him, a blond and a brunette. The blond is Angelica; they meet smoking on the office rooftop. To his surprise, she has clout in the company and soon has him flying off (with her) to make presentations. The brunette is Beatrice, a new flatmate, hoping for a teaching job in the national service. Angelica dangles a posting with her in Barcelona; Beatrice is simply Beatrice. Will Matteo figure out what he wants - and decide before opportunity passes him by?Written by
a nice film. that is the most important verdict about a honest portrait of an age, love story, survive, choices, friendship, passion and not the best job, sentimental alternatives and the perfect way to remain yourself. it is not original but its fresh humor is the most important ingredient. it has a lot of clichés but this fact is one of its virtues. a film about a side of Italy. romantic but not in classic sense. seductive but not in the formula of expectations. bitter portrait of a generation who has only the purpose to remains young, free and happy. with all the risks. with a spirit of romanticism who only in an Italian movie could be realistic. short, an useful film. for understand the adultescence. important for the viewer around 30 years age to discover few solutions to see the splendid beauty of every day life.
