The respect for who doesn't want to live hoping things will change
Melchionna was really able to deal with this argument never saw in this manner so exhaustive in cinema! You are watching a movie about suicide, and you realize you're laughing, so you reflect about the meaning of what is occurring and you look for an explanation for your cheerfulness while a man is suffering and is going to die... The contrast between mirth and sadness is so obvious that you must ask yourself how is possible for a man to prefer suicide to the desire to carry on... Director shows a lot of little reasons to arrive to this choose, directly or indirectly, like failure in work, disappointment in his own dream, the oppression of a family who doesn't understand you, superficial friends... Finally, you are building your idea of the reasons which make you decide that's over, and you're asking yourself: is it really so simple to judge someone who refuses to live of hope? You don't mind if at the end that man will die or will change his mind: what's important is the reactions of people that enclose him, both acquaintance and foreign. This is what make this title a masterpiece!
