What is going on here
27 February 2020 | by strazhnykSee all my reviews

Lot's of grim and dark stories of the some families living in the outskirts of Rome, who's lives and faiths are tied somehow to each other. The creators try their best to show how far could people aggression go, how careless and stupid decisions lead to more stupid decisions. There are moments where you laugh, the moments where you fill quite embarrassed for the character's actions in the movie, and there are moments that you want to cry because of deep grief... Modern Italian Cinema at its best, you should decide if you like it or not.
