In a building on the outskirts of Rome the lives of some neighborhood are stirred up. A plot that sees love and pay sex mix, crime and hope, tragic and comic, forming a variegated mosaic in which the periphery is a monstrous giant stranded on the edge of a large city.Written by
It belongs in the genre of films where the gay characters are ultimately sad and unfulfilled. And while American gay movies seem to have moved on, other countries aren't there yet. And as such it's far above average. The thing I find so refreshing about foreign films is the lack of the need to explain. The viewer is tasked with putting it all together, which makes it a very personal thing open to wide interpretation. We are tasked with filling in the gaps. This is no easy film. I did feel like it overplayed it's hand a bit which is why my rating isn't higher. And I'm kind of over the sad homosexual genre of film.
