For the young Méte, a graphologist fascinated by the psychology hidden behind writing, it's an embarrassing and difficult situation having to take care of his half-sister Belinda, a seventeen-year-old teenager in the balance between everything and nothing, during the second marriage of Méte's father (the only thing the two have in common). To avoid the situation, Méte pretends to be mostly busy with Damiano, a womanizer friend, and Bruno, colleague and separated father. But Méte must eventually face his half-sister, a subject hitherto only grazed.

User Reviews

Contrary to summary and other reviews these are unrelated people, who are future STEP siblings not "half" siblings
20 April 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

I cannot believe that the reviewers seem to be following the erroneous plot summary. The two siblings in this film are not related at all when they "get together." They are age of consent kids of two people who will be getting married. At the time of the getting together they are not related whatsoever, and even after their parents marry, they are just STEP kids, no blood relation whatsoever. One is 17 and one is 19 which is full age of consent in Italy.

This a light-hearted, and at best. average comedy, where the relationship is AWKWARD -- but not anything like incest. For example it would be legal for these two "siblings" to marry in every US state and in every European country as well as Canada or Australia.
