Friends for Life (Amici per la pelle) Reviews

  • Oct 02, 2014

    "Amici Per La Pelle" is a perfectly enjoyable movie about the strong friendship between two schoolboys as they grow up. They are apparently from different backgrounds, although I didn't find the contrast enough to make their friendship seem so unlikely, which might make for more of a story. As with much 1950s-60s Italian cinema, not a lot really happens, but it's all very watchable and well-made. 7.25/10
