Great, if you either mature enough or immature enough
This is a crazy but at the same time very profound movie disguised in a randomly messy human relationship and hardship of life, dealing with emptiness, growing pain, poppy love, aging pressure, phony love life and relationship, parenthood, friendship, aging worries, and all the related families that have to interweave, intervene, to be acted upon, to pretend, unavoidable not to participate in a lot of group activities nobody really enjoyed. Parents and their children, best friends and their families, marriage failures and marital crisis. There are lot of things could happen and explode, blowing out of the water and turn ugly without warning. The relationship among husbands and wives, parents and children, friends, are actually all based upon a very fragile, very unpredictable foundation. The screenplay is great, the directing very liberal, the performances of all the actors are flawless. Thanks to a very good casting job. This Italian movie is a modern day Fellini's "8-1/2 (1963)" and "La Dolce Vita (1960)" in colors; this kind of movies could only be made out of Italy.
