Storyline

Riko works in a cured meats factory, like his father, surrounded by more pigs than people. The real, everyday love he shares with Sarah, is in predicament. While Riko's unhappy with his job, he's lucky to be working at all, unlike several of his colleagues fired at the age of fifty. Not even going out with friends, including Carnevale, is enough to soothe the professional and existential crisis. To shake things up, he decides to drive to Rome with his friends. Together they take part in a protest during which Riko receives a blow to the head. The hit brings a change including making amends with his wife and confronting the problems at work. Riko and Sara decide to remarry though this emotional new beginning is abruptly interrupted by Sara's confession. She cheated on him with Carnevale, his best friend, who then commits suicide. Riko is then fired and the loss of his friend and job sends him spiraling into a depression that leads him to consider suicide. It's thanks to his son, Pietro... Written by AnonymousB

Tutto bene!
26 May 2018 | by npvarleySee all my reviews

I have been a fan of Luciano Ligabue's music for many years now and I was keen to see this movie. Living in Thailand, as I do now, it was hard to get my hands on a copy! But it was well worth the effort.

It's a thoroughly engrossing movie. If you're a fan of action movies, this probably isn't for you. If, however, you're a fan of movies about people and their lives, the daily struggle to be true to yourself and your loved ones, to earn a living in an ever-changing modern world, you will enjoy this moive.

Superb performances from the cast, especially Stefano Accorsi, Kasia Smutniak, Walter Leonardi and Fausto Maria Sciarappa. It's beautifully shot, with gorgeous colour and lighting. The script is good. The music, of course, mostly taken from Ligabue's album Made in Italy, suits the mood of the movie wonderfully.

It's a superb movie, so do try to see it. You won't be disappointed!
