A life in comum can be a great life
23 September 2018 | by mazzobrSee all my reviews

Who would expect something interesting happening from the little town of Desiderata (literally desperate)? As a result, Desiderata is desperate for a new event something to shake its slow daily life. Two brothers with a criminal record had planned to give this city a grand robbery. When the first theft went wrong one of them is sent to jail. There, he among other prisioners had a weekly class of literature and poetry with Desiderata's mayor. After being released from jail, he starts his work of spreading poetry and the capacity to fly through words to Desiderata's inhabitants. He changes his brother criminal life inspiring him to praise and sing the beauty of their land and people. "La Vita in comune" brings the best of the atmosphere of Italian movies: a good story, a beautiful place where common people face daily conflicts where one can read words of poetry and humanity.
