  1. Being from the neighbourhood the movie was filmed in and Italian, I may have a biased opinion of this movie, but regardless it was brilliantly acted.

It's touches on aspects of life we all go through and I personally have been involved in a very similar scenario as the movie depicted a few up years back! If you have not seen this movie, do yourself a favour and watch it, I promise you won't regret it, a beautiful piece of work!!
