Too much sometimes...
21 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

"Quo vado?" is an Italian comedy in which we watch a man who is born and raised in a small Italian city, with a guaranteed job in the public sector. After a new government takes control everything in public sector change because it wants to cut down on bureaucracy. As a result, the working conditions of his job will change and also his whole life.

I liked this movie because it has an interesting plot but not something extraordinary that will leave you speechless. I believe that it's a good average movie to spend your time and have fun either watching it alone or with company. The only problem or disadvantage of this movie is too much in some scenes and becomes extreme in order to be even funnier but the result is exactly the opposite. It becomes boring and makes you feel that it tries too much for something in order to be funny. I believe that this is a result of the direction which was made by Gennaro Nunziante. In general, I liked the interpretations of Checco Zalone who played Checco and Eleonora Giovanardi who played Valeria.

Finally, I have to say that "Quo vado?" is a funny comedy with some hilarious scenes but it did not reach its true potential. I believe that you aren't going to waste your time watching it. I recommend for everyone to see it because I am sure that you are going to have a great time watching it but don't have high expectations about the plot.
