Initiation for their existence has a very high cost and Vittorio, to save himself, abandons Cesare, who instead will inexorably sink. The bond that unites them is so strong that Vittorio really never shall abandon his friend, always hoping to be able to look to the future with new eyes. Together.

Ruthlessly human
24 April 2018 | by rennacacciapuotiSee all my reviews

Basically, I watched the movie out of curiosity about the performance of Luca Marinelli, who is becoming one of the most admired actors of Italy. It turned out to be a really captivating story, thanks to the impressive, merciless realism of every single aspect of the setting. As a matter of fact the movie shows a perfect representation of the outskirts' most tragic aspects and human weakness in general. This, as well as the charachters' convincing portrayals, makes the movie exceptionally involving and touching. Definitely inappropriate if you're looking for some light-hearted entertainment, but absolutely recommended.
