Veloce come il Vento: Every family could use a pothead brother.
10 August 2016 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

Despite some awful music (and some really bad acting) this was a nice film. Set in the land where the heart of Italian racing passion beats harder, this was the story of a young girl and her two brothers.

I can't say precisely if it were a drama or a comedy nor can I say which was its style. Let's say it was less funny than 'Mediterraneo', more predictable than 'The Best Offer' and not as entertaining as 'Io e mia Sorella'. But it had something in common with these very good titles.

Movies like this could be good for Italian Cinema: in my Country, knowingly or not, we all are looking for a new National style of which to be proud.
