Interesting movie
24 July 2017 | by wmoscaduranSee all my reviews

This is a very interesting movie about two Italian brothers with their respective families who got involved in serious problem when their kids (a 16 years boy and a same age girl) apparently got involved in a crime. Each brother have a very different reaction and shows a very tense relationship between them. Each one of them have a different point of view of the meaning of success and have their own way to protect the people they care.Shows how teenagers can sometimes manipulate their parents and when they have money they think some other peoples lives don't really matters. The end of the movie is unexpected and overall is a very well acted movie. Has drama, suspense, good dialogues and a good job with the cameras. I definitely recommend it and planning to watch more movies from this director.
