Storyline

A chemist, university researcher barely earning a living, is fired. After meeting a student of his, he learns the street value of drugs. He then designs a "non-illegal" drug and starts selling it with a group of friends, PhD holders working menial jobs and underpaid. Things get complicated when they earn too much money, get noticed, and their business is frowned-upon by a big drug dealer named "Murena"... Written by dw-benini

Surprisingly funny and thought provoking
9 January 2015 | by bradamante_14See all my reviews

This must be the best Italian comedy of the last few years... Authentic and thought-provoking portrait of the socioeconomic impasse of that wonderful country and its newest generation of "adults". Hysterical gags and great acting. At long last, Italy reconnects with its greatest form of art - laughing at its own miseries and the whimsical ways they require to be overcome. "L'arte di arrangiarsi" (the art of getting by) over a draconian, timeless, ever-obstructing, complacently ignorant State will never cease to gift every generation with the Italian art of David and Goliath storytelling. Brilliant script, great technical quality..a must see!
