Saw this at a theater where they play a lot of world cinema. This is a documentary by two gay guys who are trying to decide whether to leave Italy or stay. It covers all the not so nice things about Italy and also the lovely things. A real eye opener. I especially appreciated the tender scenes and the way these guys filmed the movie. Highly recommend it.

Love it or leave it: gives a lot of reasons to leave it but almost none beyond the love of the home land no matter how corrupt, polluted or a general out of touch ruling class. Although there is lots of italy to see in this movie the focus is on the struggle of many italians who are either bogged down by the system or are actively fighting it. Not really an uplifting movie but still a few comical moments that are played up. interesting but not quite captivating.

A bitter-sweet road trip that takes a hard-edge look at some of the real challenges in Italian society today, and some engaging characters that take the bull by its horns. They are certainly no-quitters ...

A road trip and documentary. Playful look at the problems that Italy faces after years of economic hardship and conservative rule.

Luca and Gustav examine the question: Should young people leave Italy because of its woes? As part of that process we follow them on a fast-paced road trip looking at scenes of crisis, mismanagement, political chicanery, immigrant exploitation and other problems with Italy.

Despite all of the problems, the movie remains upbeat as it talks with those in Italy that hope to change the problems that come up in each segment. Overall, the movie treats this as a farce, in the Michael Moore-style of relating issues and problems.

And you do get to see a lot of Italy.
