Storyline

The ostensibly simple story of a sympathetic veteran teacher giving Italian lessons to a weekly class of diverse immigrants is given infinitely more depth and complexity by the manner in which director Daniele Gaglianone renders his story. Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, truth and artifice, and between documentary and drama, Gaglianone has created a film within a film. You see the apparent artifice of Gaglianone's crew using professionals, including the noted film actor Valerio Mastandrea as the teacher, interlinked with 'real' immigrant protagonists, studying the language to improve their chances of employment and of gaining a permanent residence permit. Thus in the course of the lessons there is simultaneously the painful and upsetting relation of the students' personal stories but also humour, as they interact and share their humanity, bridging cultural differences, united in their striving to make a better life for themselves.

A microcosm in Italy
20 April 2014 | by a-pallacciSee all my reviews

This movie talk about a story of a teacher that teach Italian to a group of immigrants. All the people in the movie are so real, and that is marked when all the troupe of the movie appear in the field and take part in the story. The little stories of the immigrants cross(breed) one in the other in a wonderful way, and can give you a conscious point of view of the immigrants situation in Italy. The meaning actor Valerio Mastrandrea, had proved an extremely social and a human maturity, with his performance. Gaglianone, the movie director had say that "just him" could deal with that heavy arguments with this light sensibility. So enjoy the movie.
