Mirko and Manolo are best friends and live in the suburbs of Rome. They both live in poor conditions with their single parents, are still in school and struggle with occasional odd jobs to make ends meet. Together they share dreams of women, of sex and money, of a better life to come. After killing a man in a hit-and-run one night, they get involved with the local mafia and their lives change dramatically. Soon they find themselves doing the dirty work for their new bosses and have fresh blood on their hands. But lured by the dreams of easy money and illusions of a thriving career, they fail to realize the consequences of their choice. Life in the underworld becomes exceedingly tough and Mirko and Manolo soon disconnect from family and former friends as they engage on a download spiral, a pathway towards darkness.
Watching this film was a painful experience but a rewarding one too. The title, which I could roughly translate as "the land of what's enough", was not completely clear to me.The film shows a very realistic picture of contemporary life in degraded outskirts of big cities. Thanks to the good acting and direction the film makes you feel and think. .Which is what I look for in films.
