First I must admit that I only watched only one hour of the film before I just had to leave the cinema in order to enjoy life again. I have never had a touch for Italian films and this one clearly answers why (but at least I gave it another shot). Everything is wrong. Dialogues, scenes, acting, filming. Latter is on such a low level that, like the rest of the movie, it physically hurts to watch it. And why bother to watch so much misery? Why bother to watch grownups screw up their lives like this? I often find movies from my home country (Norway) being slow in terms of dialogue and action, but this film even topped that. The action is so easy to predict; no, this was really, really bad.
I saw the film within the program of the Oslo pix festival in June 2018.
